philHp s Outlines Program in Thes- 
pian's First Meet Monday. 

The Wig and Buckle held its first 
meeting of the season, Monday evening, 
the Conservatory. The number of the 

lid gu ard p resent was wel1 bolstered b y 

newcomers anxious to venture their for- 
tunes on the boards. 

Harold Phillips, president of the orga- 
nization, outlined the program for the 
following year. A major production will 
be staged early in November to pad the 
Thespian coffers, so to speak, work to 
begin immediately. A schedule of one- 
act pieces, one a month, will be under 
student direction. An operetta in co- 
operation with the Conservatory and a 
play with a religious turn are being con- 
sidered for later in the season. 

Professor Struble, under whose dic- 
tum the group will operate this year, 
opened discussion on the November 
show. "Meet The Wife," a rollicking 
farce, "The Far Off Hills," an Irish 
number, "The Late Christopher Bean," 
and a westerner, "Green Grow The Li- 
lacs," were suggestions in order. The 
Irish comedy and "Christopher" are still 
under consideration, the royalty question 
having popped forth. Casting was set 
tentatively for Monday next. The as- 
semblage was duly adjourned by Mr. 
Phillips who betook himself to the 
"dorm" where he executed a little job 
of make-up on a certain individual whose 
plight later considerably upset some of 
the freshmen. 

The Wig and Bucklers urge all new- 
comers to present their applications for 
membership to Miss Louise Shearer, 
secretary, without further delay.

Shroyer, Third-Seeded, and Lazin 
Lose In Early Round Matches. 

Several upsets and a considerable 
number of closely-contested matches 
marked the first week's play in the first 
annual Lebanon Valley College men's 
tennis tournament now under way on the 
college courts. 

Homer Donmoyer, seeded first in the 
:ourney, and a topheavy favorite to land 
the crown, entered the semi-final round 
Tuesday by virtue of a three-set vic- 
tory over Edward Bachman, and Rich- 
ard Ax, second-seeded, landed a berth in 
the semi-finals when he defeated Ar- 
thur Evelev last Friday, but "Wib" 
Shroyer, seeded third, fell by the way- 
side in the second round when he went 
down before the steady stroking of Clair 
Snell. Norman Lazin, number six player 
on last year's varsity tennis team was 
also the victim of an upset when he 
lost to Ed Tallman in a first round 

Many of the matches went to the 
three-set limit, and most of the sets 
were won by slight margins. The fourth- 
seeded player in the men's competition is 
Phil DeHuff, a Lebanon first-year man, 
Early round play has also been start- 
ed in the women's tournament, which 
attracted a field of twenty entries, with 
Velma Gingrich the top-seeded favorite. 
Others seeded are C. Roberts, E. Jag- 
nesak, and C. Kohler, in the order 

The men's results, including Tuesday's 

Upper Bracket: First round: Holtz- 
man defeated Miller, 6-0, 6-0; Hershey 
defeated Umberger, 6-3, 9-1 1, 9-7. Sec- 
ond round: Donmoyer defeated Spohn, 
6-0, 6-0; Bachman defeated Earnest, 4-

At the opening of this school year, the 
membership of both the Chorus and 
3irls' Band increased considerably more 
than previous years, the chorus having a 
-oil of over 100 voices. The Girls' Band 
s doing promising work and is antici- 
pating a good year. We shall hear more 
>f both organizations this winter season. 

Last week the Lebanon Community 
Concert Association announced the be- 
ginning of another concert series for the 
approaching winter season. Their pro- 
grain includes such people as Carola 
Goya, Spanish dancer; Beatrice Burfold, 
Harpist; Toscha Seidel, Violinist; and 
the Russian Imperial Singers, a group 
of 5 internationally known Russian men. 

York and Lancaster concerts, which 
Lebanon Community people, holding a 
membership card, may also attend, will 
be announced later.

Sophs Subdue Frosh 

In Numeral Fight 

According to tradition on the first 
Monday night spent at L. V. C, the 
Sophs and Frosh engage in a numeral 
fight, which, according to the Freshman 
Bible of this year, "Really is not a fight, 
for the main purpose is to hang banners 
about the campus with your own class 
numbers painted on in large letters." 
As the second year men had no oppor- 
tunity to read the handbook, they hung 
most of their banners in the form of fists 
on the personages of the first year men. 
The signs of banners being hung on the 
countenances of several Frosh were very 
much in evidence Tuesday morning. 

The highlight of the scrap, however, 
was made by the class of '39, when they 
towed away sophomore Aungst's vehi- 
cular conveyance. Although we wonder 
why anyone should want to take such a 
thing on their hands, we must admit 
that the Freshmen deserve credit for 
their coup d'etat. 

The fight proper, which occurred 
ibout 3:00 A. M., was an overwhelming 
victory for the boys of '38. The scrap 
was of brief duration, and in a few mo- 
ments the Freshmen were subdued and 
soon in bonds. 

Deciding that their opponents had not 
received sufficient exercise in the fight, 
the benevolent Sophs extended them- 
selves to organize a hikers' club for the 
defeated. So they drove a few of the 
combatants southward to the mountains 
and there deposited them. The last hiker 
returned to the campus in time to miss

Wilt Is Speaker At 

First Y. M. Service 

The first Y. M. C. A. vesper ser- 
vice of the school year was held Sun- 
day evening in the "Y" room of the 
men's dormitory. Quite a number of 
dormitory students were in attend- 
ance. Dr. Wilt, pastor of the college 
church, delivered a short but inspir- 
ing address. Adam Bigler had charge 
of the devotions. 

Sixty-Ninth Freshman Week In Review 

This year marks the sixty-ninth an- 
nual opening of Lebanon Valley College. 
The dormitories and dining hall were 
opened to the entering students on Wed- 
nesday, September 18, at nine o'clock. 
Freshman registration and physical ex- 
aminations for all new students began 
at nine o'clock. "Freshman Fellowship," 
under the auspices of the Y. W. C. A. 
and Y. M. C. A., were held in the Y. M. 
C. A. rooms and in North Hall parlor 
Wednesday evening. 

A chapel service in the college chapel 
was held Thursday morning. Doctor Clyde 
A. Lynch, as president of the college, 

welcomed the new students, and intro- 
duced the faculty. Doctor A. H. Stoneci- 
pher addressed the class on "Campus Cit- 
izenship." I Ie explained what was expect- 
ed of college students, defined the rules, 
and announced the conditions under 
which hazing was abolished. Immediate- 
ly following Doctor Stonecipher's address 
the placement examination began with 
the psychology tests. In the afternoon 
Miss Helen E. Myers, college librarian, 
explained how to use the library. The 
foreign language tests were conducted. 
In the evening the informal compliment- 
ary dinner to new students was held in 
the dining hall. 

For the first time the college church 
has been the scene of reception for first 
year students. More than three hundred 
freshmen, old students, church members, 
and guests attended the delightful re- 
ception Thursday evening. Doctor W. 
A. Wilt, pastor, welcomed the friends, 
and the program opened with a musical 
selection by a vocal trio, Mrs. A. H. 
Stonecipher, Mrs. E. P. Rutledge, and 
Mrs. A. K. Mills, accompanied at the 
piano by Mrs. Clark Carmean. Doctor 
P. A. Wallace made some interesting 
remarks, followed by a clarinet solo by

Kutztown State Teachers' New Deal 
footballers led the Flying Dutchmen 
from L. V. C. a merry chase in the 
season's opener dedicating a new sta- 
dium at Kutztown, Saturday, but the 
Valley eleven prevailed in the final three 
periods to overcome a first-quarter lead 
and land the inaugural battle, 19 to 6. 

Dematteo scored for the Teachers late 
in the first session, but a second-period 
tally by Fridinger equalized the count, 
and the Valleyites outplayed their op- 
ponents in the final half to score twice 
more, adding the extra counter to the 
second six-point tally to run the point 
total to 19. • • •- •■■ 

Following the opening kickoff Kutz- 
town netted three successive first downs 
on running plays to advance to the Val- 
ley 23-yard line before the Blue and 
White defense braced to stop the Teach- 
ers' onslaught. The Kutztowners Were 
riot to be denied, however, Dematteo re- 
turning one of Lutz's punts from his OWn 
40-yard stripe sixty yards down the side- 
line to a touchdown shortly after the 
first advance had been halted. A line 
plunge attempt for the extra point was 

The Flying Dutchmen took the ball 
after the next kickoff and remained on 
the offensive until the close of the initial 
half. Rhoads. former Rutgers Prep star, ' 
and Kress, Minersville High School 
product, divided the ball-carrying as- 
signment until the umpire ruled inter- 
ference on a forward tossed by Kress 
to Raymond Frey, wingman from Leb- 
anon High School. This ruling gave 
Lebanon Valley a first down on their 
opponents' 15-yard line. On the next 
play Kress made a strike on a running 
pass to fullback Fridinger, who dashed 
ten yards for a score. Rozman's kick 
for the extra point was wide. 

A determined offensive after the in- 
termission netted Lebanon Valley a 
touchdown when Kress plunged into the 
end zone on fourth down after the Val- 
leyites had registered a first down on the 
4-yard line. Straight football had ad- 
vanced the ball to the 35-yard marker 
before Kress tossed an aerial to Frey, 
who was downed on the 4-yard line. The 
Flying Dutchmen were denied the lead 
on three plays, but Kress registered on 
his last-down plunge. Rhoads tallied the 
extra point on a plunge through the 
center of the line. 

In the last period Kress scored the 
final touchdown on an off-tackle play 
from the 6-yard marker after an of- 
fensive drive earlier in the session had 
been unsuccessful when L. V. C. was de- 
tected off-sides on a play in which Klipa 
plunged into the end zone from the 1- 
yard line. T. Rozman's kick for extra 
point was once again unsuccessful. 

Lebanon Valley outscored Kutztown, 
eleven to nine, in the matter of first 
downs, but the Teachers were at no time 
hopelessly outclassed.

With the abolition of hazing and freshman rules, Lebanon Valley College is 
taking a big step. Not only is it a big step but it is probably the most talked about 
thing on the campus at present. 

For years and years it has been customary for the upper classes to take the 
attitude that the Frosh are a cocky bunch of green horns who need to be shown 
their place, and that the only way to show them their place is to humiliate them 
physically and mentally. The student governing bodies legislated special confining 
rules solely for the freshman. Even the sophomores did not escape the indignity 
of being forced to wear so-called "head coverings." You and I of the upper classes 
know all about this. We took our doses and if we were wise we kept our mouths 
shut about it, even if we didn't like it. After our first year, however, we looked 
back on those first tender months, and although we realized that sometimes undue 
nastiness and even brutality had been inflicted upon us, still we began to think, 
when we saw the new freshman, "My gosh, if I acted like that I should have been 
tramped on." Some of us began to thump our chests and say that we'd never 
have been the great guys we are today if we hadn't been given "the works" as 
freshmen. Yes sir, it positively did us a world of good. Others more conservative 
felt that after all we lived through it and most of us didn't get so much and 
anyway it's a lot fun — when you're an upper-classman. A few were always dead 
against it. 

When "no hazing" was coming into effect most everyone howled. "What's 
going to happen to school spirit?" "What is the Senate going to do!" "How will 
the freshmen ever get any esprit des corps?" But the most sensible objection came 
from the men's dorm. "What about we who have to live with the freshmen?" 
Yes, are we to step out and kow-tow to the new men, let them run the place? 

Now, let's hear the other side. It seems that the powers that be who initiated 
this emancipation move for under-classmen have a nice bit of applied psychology 
back of the move. The fact is that years ago intelligent men discovered that in 
any system of education clubbing the subject — forcing him to learn his lesson — is 
not nearly as effective as the more subtle method of guiding him along the proper 
routine. In other words, "pushing" is not nearly so effective as "pulling." And 
what is thelprocess of blending new students into the life of the college but a form 
of education, and what other justification has hazing that it is an educational 
means toward this end? 

For it is true, never forget, that when a freshly graduated high school pupil 
enrolls at a< college as a freshman he is inclined to think himself just about on 
top of the pack. He is inclined to talk too much about dear old Center High 
back home and of his accomplishments there, and when he starts in on his brilliant 
athletic and social record, the mere mention of the name Center induces nausea in 
upper classmen who are forced to listen. Of course everyone's going to be happier 
and the freshman himself is going to advance a step towards adulthood when 
he ceases to harp on(his past exploits. 

Now science has shown that the best educational method is one of entice- 
ment. That is what the administration plans to adopt. No, fellow upper-classmen, 
they're not going to turn the school over to the freshmen. All that is insisted upon 
is that there shall be no discrimination ibetween classes. Silly restrictions such as 
the grass rule have been removed and a more friendly spirit of good fellowship is 
extended towards the new class. The< new man can soon perceive his social life in 
our community and he will make the metamorphosis from the high school to the 
college student of 'his own free will, instead of the attempt being made to force 
him to change. 

Of course there are some of the bumptious sort in every class. A persistent 
person of this sort will be given a talking toiby the Senate or W. S. G. A. and it 
will be suggested that he change his ways so as to be less obnoxious. If he still 
persists the student organizations will turn the offender over to higher authorities 
where an attempt will be made to find out what is causing the difficulty and to 
proscribe an educational program to correct it. Under this system the student 
governing bodies are freed iof much petty business under the old system of rules 
and have a much greater responsibility in dealing wisely with offenders and in 
preventing discrimination between classes and in protecting the rights of all. As 
to class unity and spirit the freshman are still going to wear dinks and berets 
so that they will be able to distinguish one another and thus develop a class 

Certainly, .the greatest burden of effort towards making this new program a 
success rests on the shoulders of the freshman himself. It is up to him to discover 
how he should act and then to act that i way. All in all the program sounds pretty 
sane to us. The student governing bodies have endorsed it, the freshmen have 
promised to do their part. Now it is up to the whole school to put it across.

Clever Thief Tricks 

West Hall Students 

A burglary was committed at West 
Hall early this week. On the way to 
the post office, Monday, September 
30, Esther Koppenhaver and Ruth 
Goyne stopped at the dormitory for 
a letter. While Ruth waited at the 
corner, Esther entered the building 
and found a young man sitting inside 
the back parlor. He was wearing a 
blue sweater and light checked trou- 

"Good morning. Has the piano 
truck come yet?" he wanted to know. 
After Esther told him she knew noth- 
ing about any truck, the stranger 
left for North Hall. 

When the freshmen returned they 
found their pocketbooks lying on 
their desks, empty. About twenty 
dollars was taken. 

Doctor Lynch has turned the whole 
matter over to the police.

Even in the face of the frosh new deal 
one stumbles now and then across a

a certain dignified member of the men's

sion to go home on a visit over the week 
end. The senator weighed the situation 
in his customary judicious manner. And 
then patted the young student on the 
head, saying, "Go on home, son, I'll see 
that it's O. K." Paul's big-hearted that

More home games than usual have 
been arranged for Lebanon Valley's 
football followers this year, with Drexel, 
Penn Military and Albright coming to 
Annville for the annual gridiron tilts 
with the Flying Dutchmen. These three 
games on the home field promise to be 
grand battles, too. Just recall last year's 
scores— Drexel, 8: L. V. C, 7; P. M. C, 
12i L. V. C, 7; L. V. C, 6: Albright,

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 

The La Vie Collegienne has contracted with a certain mythical freshman and a 
co-ed of the same vintage to print excerpts weekly from their respective private 
diaries. Inasmuch as the editors cannot hold themselves responsible for the 
soothingsayings of freshmen, moreover since the freshmen in question do not ac- 
tually exist (although they, well might), the La Vie staff en masse hereby ab- 
solves itself from responsibility for any opinions expressed in this column, by 
innuendo or otherwise.. 

on "How to Study" Saturday morning, 
and the mathematics test, last of the ori- 
entation tests, was given. Those students 
who participated in the annual scholar- 
ship examination were exempt from all 
those previously taken. 

Saturday evening the formal Y. W. C. 
A. and Y. M. C. A. reception was held 
in the Alumni Gymnasium. Doctor and 
Mrs. Lynch, the members of the faculty 
and their wives, Robert Cassel and Irma 
Kieffer, were in the receiving line. A 
program in the chapel preceded the re- 

The formal opening services were held 
Monday morning in the chapel. Pro- 
fessor R. Porter Campbell opened the 
services at the console of the new twen- 
ty thousand dollar, four-manual Moller 
organ, marking the first time the organ 
has been played in public. Devotions 
were offered by Doctor Wilt, followed 
by an address by Rev. Paul A. Shettel, 
A.M., S.T.D., of Baltimore. Following 
a brief intermission, Harold Malsh, pro- 
fessor of violin at the conservatory, and 
Professor Campbell, organist, were fea- 
tured. The two new conservatory pro- 
fessors, Miss Beula Duffey, pianist, and 
Mr. Hubert Linscott, baritone, made 
their initial appearance. The postlude 
by Professor Campbell closed the pro- 

Classes at the college started at one- 
thirty Monday afternoon. 

Fri., Sept. 27 — Clio and Kalo joint ses- 
sion. Good program. Went to dance. 
No waiting line like last week. Asked a 
girl to dance. She said, "No, I don't 
dance Pennsylvania, I dance New Jer- 
sey." Couldn't quite understand. Met 
girl named Judy. Made me feel sort of 

Sat., Sept. 28— Ate breakfast. Ate din- 
ner. Saw show. Ate supper. Saw show. 
Didn't see Judy. Went to bed. 

Sunday, Sept. 29 — Went to church. 
Studied. Went to bed. Had a hard time 
— my sheets weren't somehow just like 
they ought to have been. 

Monday, Sept. 30— Went to classes. 
Was in day-students' room talking 
about my high school. Some boy 
said I should have Chic Sale (who- 
ever that might be) build four walls 
around me. These college students 
say the queerest things. They pretended 
to murder one boy tonight. I was scared 
and gave a boy a dollar for flowers. I 
guess that was a waste of money. 

Tues. Oct. 1 — Watched four fellows 
playing tennis. One fellow said they were 

professors but he must have been kid- 
ding. Saw Judy in hall, she smiled. I 
believe I like her. 

"Here lies 

A Fisherman, 
As usual." . 

Fri.., Sept. 27— Was at Clio. Awful 
bore. Some smooth-looking boys. Danced 
with one awful simp — couldn't dodge 

Sat., Sept. 28 — Went to game. Johnny 
took me. Nice boy and dough galore. 
Believe I'll go out for cheerleading. 

Sunday, Sept. 29 — Slept. 

Mon., Sept. .30 — Entered tennis tourna- 
ment. Supposed to play a girl named 
Bye. Couldn't find her. Believe I'll re- 
sign. No fags in "dorm" — "one-horsey" 
in my opinion. Supposed to write a 
theme. Didn't know college was so 

Tues., Oct. 1 — Saw that simp again in 
hall. Gave him a "come hither" and the 
poor kid almost fainted. Ate too much 
cake in Peggy's room the other night. 
Still feel like a sponge. Ho-hum. Guess 
I'll listen to Wayne King and hit the

Seems like as if another numeral fight 
has come and gone, nothing gained, 
probably something lost, and campaign 
planning for next year's noble struggle 
is now in progress. Those versed in the 
tactics of numeral fighting will please 
confer with the class of 1938. 



When you get what you want in your 

struggle for self, 
And the world makes you King for a 


Then go to the mirror and look at your- 

And see what THAT guy has to say. 

For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or 

Who judgment upon you must pass; 
The fellow whose verdict counts most in 
your life 

Is the guy staring back from the glass. 

HE'S the fellow to please, never mind 

all the rest, 
For he's with you clear to the end, 
And you've passed your most dangerous, 

difficult test 
If the guy in the glass is your friend. 

You may be like Jack Horner, and chisel 
a plum, 

And think you're a wonderful guy; 
But the man in the glass says you're 

only a bum 
If you can't look him straight in the eye. 

You may fool the whole world down the 

pathway of years, 
An' get pats on the back as you pass, 
But your final reward will be heartaches 

and tears 

If you've cheated the guy in the glass. 
— Dale Wimbrow, The Miss. Minstrel. 



A man may be loved truly by his 
friends, but if he cannot be trusted by 
them as well in little things or big, that 
love is soon apt to reach the breaking 
point. For, after all, love is best found- 
ed on trust— the two go hand in hand 
where they win the best place in any 
heart. Be lovable by all means; but be- 
hind that loveliness let there stand the 
firm rock of trustworthiness that will be 
a refuge for your friends where love 
alone might fail. 

Does a short pleasure pay the price of 
a long regret?

lien's Tourney Now In Final Round 
V^omen Enter Quarter-Finals. 

participants in the first annual men's 
n d women's tennis tournaments at Leb- 
3 n on Valley continued to brush aside the 
-tourney seedings as the men pro- 
ceeded into the final round and play in 
J he women's competition advanced to 
the quarter-final bracket. 

Homer Donmoyer entered the final 
round by registering a comparatively 
easy victory over Clair Snell in straight 
setS| 6-2 and 6-o. For the first four 
games of the opening set, the favorite's 
semi-final adversary matched the play 
of the first-seeded star, but from there 
on it was practically a rout for Don- 
moyer. After being held to a 2-all game 
count, Homer ran off ten straight games 
to brush aside Snell' s challenge. 

However, in the lower bracket semi- 
final match, form was not so easily 
served, Phil DeHuff, promising first- 
year man, eliminating Richard Ax, ten- 
nis team veteran who was second-seeded 
in this tournament. DeHuff, seeded 
fourth, ran up a 4-0 lead in the first set 
before his opponent found himself and 
began stroking efficiently. Successive 
service breaks in the next four games 
gave DeHuff the set with the loss of 
only two games. During the second set 
Ax resorted to a chop stroke almost en- 
tirely and fought to the very limit be- 
fore going down by a 13-11 score. 

Despite the fact that a high wind 
Played havoc with many of the shots, 
the DeHuff-Ax match brought out some 
fine tennis, both of the racqueteers strok- 
>ng well and engaging in extended rallies 
for each point. Many of the games were 
deuced one or more times, and very few 
of them were won without the loss of at 
' ea st one point. 

The four seeded favorites in the wom- 
ens Play survived early-round play to 
adv ance into the quarter-finals. V. Ging- 
" cn > C. Roberts, E. Jagnesak, and C 


' er are favored in the order named.

Increased Athletic Activity For Wom- 
en Is Goal of Association. 

With the advent of Miss Esther Hen- 
derson, formerly of Shippensburg State 
Teachers College, a new spirit and ideal 
are introducted to the girls' sports on 
the campus. The fair sex has decided to 
form a girls' Athletic Asociation. Two 
girls from each class will be chosen to 
form a committee which will examine 
the constitutions and point systems of 
other schools. A constitution and point 
system will be drawn up to form a basis 
for winning letters. 

They have started out by organizing a 
hiking club. The Hello Hike was a short 
but snappy one held Thursday, October 
3. For October 10, a scout-moonlight 
hike is being planned. 

The tennis tournament is an indica- 
tion of the spirit which prevails, and 
they intend to keep it alive. To open the 
hockey season, class teams will com- 
pete in fifteen minute clashes. There 
will be two freshman and two sophomore 
teams, and probably one composed of 
juniors and seniors. It is not intended 
that the organization will conduct var- 
sity sports, nor is it desirable that Junior 
Colleges be included on the schedule. 
Negotiations for games will be made

The regular mid-week student 
prayer service was held in Philo Hall 
on the evening of October 2. Since 
it was the turn for the Y. W. C. A. 
to officiate, Iva Claire Weirick had 
charge of the meeting. A special voc- 
al number was presented by Gayle 
Mountz. She sang "Let Not Your 
Heart Be Troubled" by Oley Speaks. 
She was accompanied at the piano by 
Ruth Buck. The talk of the evening 
was given by Sarah Lupton, who 
chose as her topic "Friends". 


New President of Juniors Prepares 
For Annual Stage Production. 

At the Junior class meeting officers 
were elected and a committee appointed 
to select the annual play. Charles Kin- 
ney is the new president of the class. 
His assistants are: Paul Billet, vice- 
president; Lois Harbold, secretary; and 
John Brosious, treasurer. The members 
of the play committee, whicli includes 
the selection, staging, costuming, and 
lighting for the play, are: Harold Phil- 
lips, chairman; Claire Adams, Grace 
Naugle, Edward Schmidt, and Kenneth 
Eastland. The members of the finance 
and advertising committee, which in- 
cludes the collection and distribution of 
the tickets, any disbursements connected 
with the play, and the advertising con- 
cerning it, are: Duey Unger, chairman; 
Sara Meckley, Esther Kopenhaver, El- 
wood Needy, and Edward Bachman. 



Eats and Games Galore Make Even- 
ing Granid Success 

The new girls were entertained Fri- 
day, October 4, by the Delphian Literary 
Society at a circus party held at the tra- 
ditional spot along the Quittapahilla 

After classes a party of fifty hiked 
through the fields and woods led by the 
Delphian members. The hike ended and 
the entertainment began as they stepped 
through the Delta Lambda Sigma trian- 
gle and were welcomed by the President. 
Charlotte Stabley. Red and gold rib- 
bons, balloons and pendants were wav- 
ing from all the trees as the girls were 
seated around the fire. 

A peppy song started the fun, fol- 
lowed by a peanut scramble, a marsh- 
mallow contest, individual stunts, and a 
balloon contest. In spite of the smart, 
cold breeze nobody had a chance to get

Harclerode, Stoner, Spohn, Krone, in Sparkling Comedy, Will Lead Oft 
Buckler's Ambitious Program For Current Season. 

"The Late Christopher Bean," by Sid- 
ney Howard, a creditable comedy that 
promises to be delightfully amusing to 
any audience, has been chosen by the 
Wig and Buckle Club as its first pro- 
duction for the year. 

The story is laid in New England in 
the home of Dr. Hagge H, physician of 
a painter named Christopher Bean, who 
had died and left only a few dirty can- 
vases to pay the doctor for his efforts to 
heal him. It was a mild surprise to Dr. 
Hagge H. and his family when an old 
friend of Bean's dropped in and paid 
the bill of the deceased, and took only 

a few pictures as momentoes. It was a 
bigger surprise when another friend of 
Bean's turned up on a similar errand, 
and the biggest of all when a great New 
York art critic arrived to pay his re- 
spects to the memory of the dead artist. 
It was overwhelming when they learned 
that Christopher's daubs were worth a 
fortune, and how they scurried to find 
them. There was one in the chicken coop; 
the daughter of the house had painted 
flowers on the hack of another. A mad 
scramble ensued for the portrait of Al>-

Lebanon Valley Completely Outplays Veteran State Combination To Lead

N. Y. A. Offers Aid 

To L. V. C. Students 

The F.E.R.A. work has been intro- 
duced on the campus this year under a 
new name, N.Y.A. This work is a source 
of student help and has proved itself 

Although no one ever knows what the 
initials are for, they are looked upon as 
just another group in Roosevelt's alpha- 
bet soup. At present there are approxi- 
mately sixty students receiving help. 
There are various types of work in 
which the students are engaged as: re- 
search, surveying, tutoring, community 
entertainment, Boy Scout work, clerical 
work, landscape work and library work. 

The students are paid by federal funds 
through the state emergency relief. The 
state department of education is the 
sponsor of the project. 

Spohn Elected To 

German Club Post 

The German Club held its first meet- 
ing of the year on October 1. During 
the business session, Robert Spohn was 
unanimously elected Vice-President, to 
take the place of Paid Schach, who is 
not on the campus this year. Plans were 
made to produce a German comedy, the 
choice not being certain yet. 

The remainder of the meeting was 
given over to reading German anecdotes, 
stories and articles, and singing the fa- 
vorite German songs. 

The German Club extends a hearty 
welcome to all students interested in the 
German language, customs, and art. 

Life Work Recruits 

Hold First Meeting 

On Thursday evening, October 3, the 
Life Work Recruits held the first devo- 
tional meeting of the year. Emma Mary 
Smyser opened the program with a pi- 
ano solo, and Thomas Guinivan led the 
devotions. Elwood Needy, chairman of 
the deputation committee, appointed 
Sara Lupton, Ethel Wilt, Miller 
Schmuck, Calvin Reber to arrange the 
deputation programs for the year. 

Rev. Wilt was the speaker of the ev- 
ening. He urged all recruiters not to be 
"preachers" in the annoying sense of the 
word, but to lead sympathetic and use- 
ful lives. "Our associates of today may 
be the ones who will decide -our fate in 
twenty years," he said. At the close of 
the meeting, Reverend Wilt invited the 
organization to meet in the parsonage on 
October 17 for devotions and a social. 

The program closed with the prayer 

For fifty-two minutes of their opening- 
encounter of the 1935 gridiron season 
the Nittany Lions from Penn State were 
completely outplayed by an underdog 
Lebanon Valley eleven, who enjoyed a 
one-touchdown advantage and were ap- 
parently on their way to their first vic- 
tory in the nineteenth game of a series 
of football tilts between the two schools 
which dates back to 1905. 

But then it happened! The latent 
power of the State gridders was evi- 
denced for the first time during the 
game, and a tiring squad of Flying 
Dutchmen went down to defeat as the 
Lions scored twice to triumph by a 12-6 
count, although the Lions' share of the 
spoils of the day's battle was not for the 
Lions. The major part of the glory was 
rightfully bestowed upon the valiant 
band of warriors from Lebanon Valley 
who extended the State favorites to the 
limit to register victory. 

From the moment a wisely-chosen and 
ably-executed quick kick play forced 
the Penn State eleven back to their own 
five-yard line on the first offensive play 
of the game to the moment the Lions 
returned a final-period kick-off to their 
own 40-yard line, the Lebanon Valley 
gridmen were in complete command of 
the situation. They were out in front by 
virtue of a spectacular 74-yard dash by 
"Tampa" Hance that registered the first 
touchdown of the day's play and placed 
the Valleyites in the van by a 6-0 score. 

However, this tally seemed to waken 
the Lions to the fact that they were in a 
ball game, the vaunted State offensive 
going into action after Kniley's kick-off 
following the Valley touchdown and not 
being stopped until two six-pointers had 
been chalked up to gain victory for the 
forces of the opposition. 

Cooper, State fullback, returned Kni- 
ley's kick to the 40-yard State line. On 
the third play O'Hara tossed a pass to 
Smith, who raced to the I^ebanon Valley 
13-yard marker before being clowned. On 
a reverse play, Wear made his way 
around end to the 7-yard line. Eshbacfa 
forced his way through center to the 
3-yard line, and Cooper made it first 
down on the one-yard stripe. Cooper 
plunged through guard on the next play 
for the score-deadlocking touchdown, 
with Vonarx missing the try for the ex- 
tra point. 

Lebanon Valley was held after receiv- 
ing the State kick-off, and Lutz punted 
out of bounds on the State 43. Wear

At a recent meeting of the fresh- 
111,111 class the officers for the semes-

president. The other officers are: 
Samuel Rutter, vice-president; Helen 
Bartlett, secretary; and William 
Brown, treasurer.

Students will think twice before condemning the National Youth Adminis- 
tration plan when a careful weighing and consideration of the set-up is made. The 
significant thing that at once appears more pertinent than all others is the number 
of students aided in securing a higher education. 

The NYA functions similarly to the old FERA. The newer movement differs 
from the old in that NYA is much broader in scope. A sum of $50,000,000 has 
been set aside from the Works Progress Administration funds, and 125,000 college 
students all over the United States will be aided in addition to 200,000 high school 

The nature of the work itself has given students ample time to complete their 
outside studies and enables them to participate in extra-curricular activities. The 
work itself is of apprentice nature and will not displace skilled or professional 
labor. Students regularly employed have been glad to hear that their positions 
will not be filled by NYA workers. 


The editors have been approached by numerous new students and others who 
desire an opportunity to try out for a place on the La Vie Collegiene staff. 
While the staff is fairly complete in certain departments at present, new blood 
in any organization is always desirable and with the reorganization that is going 
to take place in our staff in the next week or two there will be opportunity for 
"cubs" to show what they can do. 

In the near future a meeting will be called for those interested in this 
publication but in the meantime it is suggested that such persons drop a card in 
the contribution box in the library stating their name and the department of the 
paper in which they are interested. 


With a change in printers necessitating a change in routine, the first issue of 
La Vie was quite a hectic thing. In fact, from what we hear, the La Vie didn't 
come out at all as far as some subscribers are concerned. It seems that the circu- 
lation department functioned somewhat erratically, although they were not much 
affected by the change in printers. If you are one of those who did not receive 
your copy of La. Vie Collegienne for Friday, October 4, a note to the editor (stat- 
ing the fact and with your name attached) will receive prompt attention. These 
notes may be dropped in the contribution box in the library.

Always in the turmoil the effect on the 
characters of those involved is upper- 
most. Always there is the flurry and

The play has been approved in New 
York, London, Paris, and Berlin. It is a 
sparkling, even-mannered work, which, 
according to the Brooklyn Times Union, 
"reaches a highly amusing climax." It 
depends on clever situations, the sur- 
prising twists of plot, and piquant devel- 
opments of character. 

The week of November eighteenth has 
been set as a tentative time for produc- 
tion. The play is being given as a bene- 
fit for the club. Tickets will be sold at 
thirty-five cents for general admission, 
and fifty cents for reserved seats. 

Richard Baus has charge of publicity. 

Miller Schmuck will direct the stage, 
and Harold Phillips, president of the 
club, will take care of lights and make- 
up. Dr. Struble, under whose guidance 
the club will function this year, will 
coach the play.

only two purposes in view: experience 
for the players and directors and en-

The food came at the critical time and 
the party lined up in front of the spa- 
ghetti booth, passed to the hot dog stand 
and on to the next booth for hot cocoa. 
After going the rounds three or four 
times, there were cakes and popcorn to 
fill any empty spaces. 

Everybody joined hands to sing a 
goodnight song. Charlotte Stabley sang 
"In the Land of the Sky Blue Waters" 
while seven lighted candles were floated 
down the water. At the end of her song 
Charlotte played the "taps" and the 
girls started back to school. As they 
went through the triangle they each re-

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 

A TH u U u Vie has £Y Ily decided to m ake this column a permanent feature 
throughout the year. The possibilities of greater interest to its readers, as the 
story develops, is worth consideration. 


Wednesday, October 2. — Some of the 
boys were talking about a new music 
student. They say she's so good she's a 
trio.* I always liked one-man hands. Saw 
some girls playing tennis in shorts and 
put mine on to play. Th y made me stop 
and said it was different with boys. 1 
don't think that's fair. 

Thursday, October 3. — Went to class 
at 1:30 and was a half-hour late. The 
professor said he started early to hear 
the world serious. I asked him what he 
meant, and he said, "Never mind, Sonny, 
you wouldn't understand anyhow." 
Guess I'll never learn. 

*Ms. indistinct. Possibly "treo." — Ed- 
itor's Nora. 

Friday, October 4. — There were, very 
many vacant seats in chapel this morn- 
ing. They took an offering, but it wasn't 
a church service like yesterday. They 
pretended to have a marriage. It seems 
they're always playing make-believe 

Saturday, October 5. — Saw Judy and 
a boy drive away in a big automobile, 
and I got a lump in my throat. I told 
my room-mate, Joe, about her and he 
said I'm a cream-puff not to talk to her. 
That was unkind, but I believe I'll try it. 

Sunday, October 6.— Listened to three 
symphony concerts and two lectures on 
radio. Tried to study in evening, but 
kept thinking of her. 'run!; hike out 
country road. Lots of other people who 
had goten tired, I guess, were sitting 
along the side of the road. Studied and 

Monday, October 7 — Saw Judy in hall, 
She looked awfully tired. Couldn't get 
nerve to say hello and went into a room. 
A man in chapel told sonic dreadful sto- 
ries which made me feel sick. Wrote 
home to tell how lonesome I am and 


Wednesday, October 2. — Saw that 
spindle-legged sap trying to play tennis 
in shorts. They say his name's Rudy. 

Thursday, October 3.— Had a date 
with a boy named Franky. The tightwad 
took me walking out in the sticks to 3 
place called "Kreider's." Johnny asked 
me to go to State with him. O. K. 

Friday, October 4. — .Sure I won't l'f 
a cheer-leader now. They already 
some daisies. Went on Delphian h i!ie 
Grandma was Clio— the mater, Delphi' 111

me Delphian. Wonder if they need j 
good president. Cool off, girlie! PaP 0,

Believe I'll make a play for him. 

Saturday, October 5. — Went to

lanon Valley came remarkably close 
etting the dope basket at State 
^.jgge last Saturday. With but eight 
•ptites of P^y remaining the Valleyites 
" leading the State eleven by one 
hdown and for fifty-two minutes had 
t0UC | aye d their worthy rivals in every 
° U rttnent of the game. Victory, or at 
a deadlock, certainly should have 
rLged to such a gallant band of grid- 
"but those Nittany Lions snatched 
^vay the glory of triumph in a dazzling 
Ct-period rally. 

* * * * 

I t w as not the lot of the Flying Dutch- 
men to attain the heights of victory over 
the ; r favored opponents, but nevertheless, 
football followers all over the East have 
recognized the scrappy Frockmen as the 
riahtful possessors of the major share 
J the day's honors. The underdog Blue 
an d White outfought their more experi- 
enced opponents and succeeded in regis- 
tering more first downs than the State 
eleven. A few trick plays and a wealth 
of reserve material were needed to over- 
come the valiant Flying Dutchmen, and 
the State forces were extended to the 
limit. They were in danger of defeat 
from the opening kick-off to the final 
whistle and were very much aware that 
their opening game was anything but a 
breeze despite the pre-season reports that 
the State College institution has a much 
improved grid aggregation this year. 

* * * * 

The series of contests with State dates 
back to 1905, but the series with Muhl- 
enberg which will be continued Friday 
night under the arclights dates back even 
farther than that. Back in 1900 the 
Mules and Flying Dutchment met on the 
gridiron for the first time, with the Blue 
and White emerging vicorious by a score 
of 36-0. Eighteen games have been con- 
tested since that first meeting, with hon- 
ors being well divided between the two 
institutions. Of the nineteen games 
played to date, the Mules have won nine, 
with Lebanon Valley victorious in an 
equal number of tilts. One game result- 
ed in a deadlock, 21-all, back in 1921. 
Relations with Muhlenberg on the grid- 
iron have been continuous since 1925, 
with Lebanon Valley holding a 5"4 edge 
over the Mules in the games played since 
that date. Last year the Blue and White 
wught Muhlenberg on the rebound from 
an earlier season defeat and went dow.i 
tore the Mules, 25 to 7. 

L. V. C. Tackle 


Last week the Mules opened their grid 
season by going down in defeat before

tossed another aerial to Smith for a first 
down for the Lions on the Valley 39- 
yaid line. 

Wear made 24 yards around end, 
Knapp picked up one yard, and Wear 
registered a first down on a reverse play 
which carried to the L.V.C. 5-yard mark- 
er. Cooper finally registered the deciding 
points when he plunged over the line in- 
to the end zone. His attempted place- 
ment try for the extra tally was wide of 
the uprights, leaving the final figures 12 
to 6 in favor of State as the Lions inter- 
cepted a Valley forward immediately af- 
ter the next kick-off and did not relin- 
quish possession of the oval for the re- 
maining seconds of play. 

But now, to return to the glory which 
was Lebanon Valley's. The Blue and 

White aggregation outscore:! the veteran 
Lion combination in the matter of first 
downs, 11 to 10, despite State's late 
comeback. During the first half, the Val- 
leyites were constantly on the offensive 
and registered the amazing total of 
eight first downs while limiting their op- 
ponents to a single first down, which was 
scored harmlessly, deep in State terri- 
tory. The Nittany Lions advanced into 
Lebanon Valley territory for the first 
time midway in the third session and on 
no occasion until the final period did 
they threaten the Valley goal line. 

Lutz took the opening kick-off on his 
own 15-yard line and returned it ten 
yards to the 25. Lutz then crossed the 
Lion defense with a quick kick which 
sailed over the head of the State safety 
man and traveled deep into enemy terri- 
tory to be touched down by "Danny" 
Bartolet on the five-yard line. 

Following an exchange of punts, Leba- 
non Valley made the first serious scoring 
threat of the game when they advanced 
the pigskin to the six-yard line, with 
Tindall and Lutz handling the ball-car- 
rying assignment. An attempted for- 
ward pass, Lutz to Lascari, grounded to 

end the scoring opportunity, with O'- 
Hara temporarily kicking out of danger. 
However, Lebanon Valley came right 
back, with Lutz featuring the offensive 
drive, and again drove deep into enemy 
territory, only to be denied a score when 
the State forward wall braced in the 
shadow of the goal-posts. 

Penn State showed their first signs of 
potential strength in the third frame 
when Cooper advanced the ball into Val- 
ley territory on a delayed line buck. 
This temporary threat carried only to 
the L.V.C. 42-yard line, however, as 
Frey fumbled a pass from Kornick and 
Sponaugle recovered for the Blue and 
White. ||i 

When the fourth period got under way 
the Flying Dutchmen were in possession 
of the ball at midfield. Kress kicked out 
of bounds on the State 24-yard line. The 
Lions scored one first down on the 34, 
but three plays in the next series of 
downs netted only seven yards and O'- 
Hara was forced to kick. Hance took 
the State punt and was downed on his 
own 24-yard line. Kress made two yards 
off tackle. Hance then made his scoring 
dash, starting off right tackle, cutting to 
the left after passing the line of scrim- 
mage, and racing 74 yards into the end 
zone. A pass, Kress to Lascari, for the 
extra point was complete, but the re- 
ceiver caught the ball out of bounds and 
the counter was not allowed. 

Kniley's kick-off was returned to the 
State 40-yard line, and State then show- 
ed a complete reversal of form to win 
the ball game with a spectacular last 
ditch rally.

Native Russian Gives Interesting Chapel Talk 

On Monday, October 7, the students of 
Lebanon Valley College were privileged 
to hear an authoritative speaker on Rus- 
sian History. Mr. D. Rempel, a 
native of Russia, although bearing a 
German name, said that too many try to 
judge Russia from their own experi- 
ences. The Russian people have never 
known independence and couldn't be in- 
dependent. Several hundred years ago 
the Tartars swarmed in upon the Rus- 
sians. When they were finally driven 
out, envoys were sent to Norway, asking 
the Norwegians to come and rule Rus- 
sia. The tzars came from Norway; the 
government was Norwegian. 

Although approximately ten thousand 
had been exiled in Siberia to work in the 
mines by the tzars, eight thousand have 
been returned. Through the communistic 
rule three million men, women, and chil- 
dren have been sent in exile to work in 
those same mines in Siberia. Many of 
them have died either on the way or 

since they have reached Siberia. 

Mr. D. Rempel explained the mean- 
ings of "Bolshevik", "Soviet", and "Com- 
munist". "Bolshevik" means "majority". 
The "majority" of the people are sup- 
posed to be Bolshevists. "Soviets" means 
city hall. That is where the rules are 
meeting. To be a "communist" they must 
first be Bolshevik and then, since there is 
only one group of Communists, be elect- 
ed to the communist group. 

The speaker was born on a five thous- 
and-acre estate, and there spent a happy 
childhood. The Germans taught the Rus- 
sians how to farm. Through them, Rus- 
sia became the second highest wheat ex- 
porting country in the world. There were 
fifty estates such as his. In 1917 a band 
of about three hundred ransacked these 
estates, killing many of their owners and 
their families. His father attempted 
vainly to obtain a box car to ship the 
family goods to a city two hundred miles 
away. They packed all their family pos- 

sessions into six large hayracks, and his 
brother, Henry, twenty-three years old, 
accompanied it. Mardnov, long black- 
haired, wearing a fur cap on one side of 
his head, rings in his ears, short jacket 
and knee breeches, with his roving band, 
attacked Henry, robbed him of every- 
thing and finally tortured him to death. 

The Communists address everyone by 
the title "Friend". It is the speaker's 
opinion that through their rule, Rus- 
sia will never flood the market with 
wheat or with any other commodity. 
They are too childlike and too destruc- 
tive. They have destroyed valuable ma- 
chinery and have broken large estates 
and large areas of land into two or three 
acres, farming these intensively. Since 
they haven't studied any science of farm- 
ing the land will be useless. 

At this point Mr. D. Rempel's 
time was finished, but it was the general 
opinion that more lectures of this type 
would certainly be appreciated. 

Campus Cuts 

The meandering of the mind of the 
writer along with a few cuts from other 
campuses constitutes this particular col- 
umn for to-day. Our first thoughts touch 
upon the departed, those of the class of 
'35. Who will now entertain us with 
those inimitable tap dances as tapped by 
the versatile Moser? . . . Who will take 
up Dale Roth's hill-billying, with guitar 
and yodeling accompaniment? . . . What 
became of Reber and Beamie's third floor 
motorcycle repair shop? . . . What or 
where was school spirit in chapel on last 
Friday morning? . . . I'll bet anyone two 
bits on Ethiopia. . . . Speaking of a 
topic of the day makes us wonder if col- 
lege students really peruse the daily 
papers when history is in the making. 
We sometimes forget that college is for 
culture and not a huge recreational hall 
to which we flee and forget about un- 
employment, depressions and a world war 
looming on the horizon. Perhaps its our 
incuriousness to find out what its all 
about. . . . Why not conduct an unpopu- 
larity contest some morning in chapel. 
Just think how you could score on the 
prof that you don't like. . . . There are 
131 college graduates in the Ohio State 
Penitentiary. . . . Anyone interested in 
joining the "Polar Bears" see the Y. M. 
C. A. president. The chief requirement 
for admission to this elect group is to 
take a 5 130 A. M. swim in the nearby 
quarry, any morning this month. . . . 
Soon the 1936 automobiles will be here 
and their manufacturers will boast of 
the speed and power of their products. 
And yet 36,000 people of the United 
States were killed last year by cars. 
That's Americanism. . . . Let's all get 
out of the dining hall more hurriedly, 
twenty minutes is much too long a time 
to practice gustatory art, ask any waiter. 
. . . Let's have a course on "Proper Ra- 
dio Program Selection" sometime. This 
is being written as strains of ultra-super 
sopranoism are sneaking under the door 
from one of the twenty-eight radios in 
the dorm. ... A word to aspiring stamp 
collectors. To date there have been a 
mere 56,874 varieties of postage stamps 
issued by the nations of the world. . . . 
If the copy reader has waded through 
this far we hand him an orchid. . . . 
Two famous last words, "Class dis- 
missed." . . . And so to bed, although 
it is only 12 -.42, for those famous words 
as uttered by the venerable sage are re- 
called to mind; "Early to bed and early 
to rise, make a man sick and he usually 

Louis Straub Speaks 

At Y. M. C. A. Service 

The Y. M. C. A. cabinet held its 
regular vespers service in the "Y" 
room of the men's dormitory last 
Sunday evening. Homer Kendall, the 
program chairman, had charge of the 
devotion, while Harold Beamesderfer 
presided at the piano. Louis Straub, 
one of the dormitory students, de- 
livered a short address on the sub- 
ject "What Are We Going to Inher- 
it?" The talk was in line with the 
general theme of the year's "Y" pro- 
gram, "Today's Youth — Tomorrow's 


What I Would Like to See 
When I Visit New York. 

I want to visit New York, not Jimmis 
Walker's tinsel city, nor Odd Mclntyre's 
merry-go-round of celebrities, but Walt 
Whitman's Manhattan, and Max Miller's. 

I don't care about Dinty Moore, nor 
Hattie Carnegie, nor Broadway, nor the 
Empire State Building, but I do care 
about the rather mad crowd of the sub- 
way and the elevated, and I want to he 
part of the crowd, just once. I want to 
sit in the balcony or on the stair — it 
doesn't matter, at the Metropolitan, to 
hear Lily Pons and Tibbett and Grace 
Moore. I want to walk along the water- 
front at night, and become intimate with 
the Atlantic, and smell salt air and oil 
from engines, and hear a fog horn from 
a tramp steamer. I want to eat peanuts 
in Central Park. I want to walk into 
the office of a popular magazine, to 
thank a certain editor for surpassingly 
gentle rejections. I want to ride the 
ferry to Jersey, with the wind sharp in 
my face. I want to stand on the dock- 
when a great ship sails for Southamp- 
ton, or Gibraltar, or Paradise; I want to 
mingle with the crowds; wave my hand- 
kerchief to the passengers; cry because 
sailings are sad, for you may never know 
what it is like. I want to walk around 
Columbia University, nonchalantly, as 
though I were already a student there. 
I want to see the melancholy brownstone 
houses of Fifty-sixth Street or there- 
abouts, and I want to meet a landlady, 
the sort who appropriates trunks and 
knows her rights. I want to have lunch 
at the Automat. I want to look down at 
the Hudson River from the roof of a 
tenement. I want to stand spelling out 
the words on the electric sign in Times 
Square. I want to ride on top of the 
Fifth Avenue bus, without a hat. I want 
to go backstage at the Shubert. I want 

to see the pushcarts of Delancey Street, 
and Mrs. Cohen and Mrs. Kelly. I want 
to see the Statue of Liberty from a tug- 
boat, in brilliant sunlight. I want to talk 
with somebody foreign and strange on 
Ellis Island, somebody just arrived from 
some place far distant, and ask what 
America is like. I want to see a sob sis- 
ter. I want to buy a guitar in a Tenth 
Avenue pawn shop. I want to buy old 
books in a dim, old book shop. 

I want to look at the faces of people 
in the streets, the harassed, the preoccu- 
pied, the smiling, the mysterious, won- 
derful faces of common people. And 
when I have done these things I shall 
have no curiosity about Wanamaker's, 
the Scandals, the tall buildings. But I 
shall have seen New York.

Co-Eds To Organize 

New Athletic Union 

(Continued From Page 1) 

with colleges of our own standing. The 
co-ed sportsters desire membership in 
the W. A. A. A. to which most of their 
equals belong. This organization fosters 
intra-mural rather than varsity sports. 

It is further hoped that a Sports Day 
can be held on the campus on which day 
each sport will be represented by a lead- 
er, chosen for her prowess in that par- 
ticular sport. 

The athletically inclined co-eds will no 
longer think in terms of hockey and 
basketball only. In adidtion to these 
sports, Lebanon Valley's girls will have 
soccer, volley ball, baseball, archery, ten- 
nis, and hiking to give vent to their pent 
up physical energy. Altogether the lead- 
ers in this movement are looking for- 
ward to a year of increased athletic ac- 
tivity for the women.

Smokes, Eats, Speeches, Music, 
Drama, Jokes Make Full Bill Of Fare. 

A brief address of welcome by Presi- 
dent Kirkpatrick opened Kappa Lamb- 
da Sigma's annual smoker for new 
students last Thursday evening in Kalo 
Hall. Many of the new men were in 
attendance and from post meeting re- 
marks it was evidenced that they thor- 
oughly enjoyed the program of the even- 
ing. "Andy" Anderson with a charac- 
teristic rendition of popular tunes was 
number one man on the program. He 
was followed by a skit entitled, "Taking 
Elmer's Picture" or "The Photograph- 
er's Mistake," now in its sixty-eight con- 
sectuive week's running in New York. 
The members of the troupe who so de- 
lightfully presented the act were Howard 
Reber, Burritt Lupton, and Harvey 
Zerbe. Mr. Zerbe was most charming in 
his difficult role, while Lupton and Re- 
ber qarried the plot extremely well. 
Then more music. Stuart Goodman sang 
"East of the Sun and West of the 
Moon," George Shadel at the piano. 

Brother Harold Beamesderfer next 
brought his elocutional talents into full 
sway and was successful in obtaining an 
overwhelming number of "Votes for 
Schlutz" in a highly inspiring political 

The faculty members present were 
called upon by the president for a few 
remarks and Professor Stokes, Car- 
mean, Schweigart, Stonecipher, and Gin- 
grich responded. Prof. Gingrich 
wowed" the audience with a camou- 
flaged duck-hunting story. Boyd Spon- 
ge, Arthur Heisch, and Robert Cas- 
sell spoke briefly to the group and then 
the refreshment committee swung into 
action. Cidering and pretzeling were 
sandwiched between smokes and jokes 
and as the group departed each was 
given a desk blotter for a favor.

Rounds Of Food And Conversation 
Make Evening Lively 

The Philo smoker for the new stud- 
ents is over, the cider is drunk, the pret- 
zels and cup cakes are eaten, the smokes 
are smoked, and Philo Hall looks dig- 
nified again ! Everyone except a certain 
Charles Ellsworth Bartolet, Esq., reports 
having had a grand time. "Danny" is 
.suffering from a severe case of eye 
strain which he contracted searching for 
l plug of chewing tobacco which some 
unkind brother had told him was hidden 
among the smokes ! 

Everyone was given a corn cob pipe 
and some tobacco as he entered the 
Chamber of festivities. Most of the 
guests lit up their pipes, but not a few 
puffed surrepticiously away at unlit ones, 
because of their several tendencies to 
gastric disorders. (After all, a crowded 
hall is no place for a hitherto pampered 
stomach to become revolutionary!)

eral of the boys swore that they actually 
were hearing a whip-poor-will, but a

Buck And DeHuff Are Defeated In 
Fall Tennis Finals. 

Champions were crowned during the 
past week in both the men's and wo- 
men's first annual fall tennis tourneys, 
the winners being the first-seeded Homer 
Donmoyer and the third-seeded Ernes- 
tine Jagnesak. 

Donmoyer gained his way to the finals 
with the loss of only one set and defeat- 
ed Phil DeHuff, fourth-seeded player 
who had previously eliminated Richard 
Ax, in the final match, which required 
four sets to determine the winner. The 
favorite copped the first two sets, 6-4 
and 6-3, dropped the third, 6-3, and then 
applied the pressure to breeze through 
the fourth set at love. 

Jagnesak defeated Ruth Buck in the 
final round of the women's tourney by 
scores of 9-7, 6-1. 

The winner, who was third-seeded, up- 
set the favorite in the semi-final round 
when she defeated Velma Gingrich in a 
limit three-set match. Ruth Buck was 
completely overlooked in the seedings, 
but she proved once again that tennis 
dope is often wrong by defeating two 
of the seated players on her way to the 
finals. She accounted for the downfall 
of Carolyn Roberts and Carolyn Kohler 
in quarter-final and semi-final matches. 
Roberts and Kohler were seeded second 
and fourth respectively, but were unable 
to defeat the steady-stroking Junior. 

Both of the fall tourneys were so suc- 
cessful that they promise to become per- 
manent fixtures in the college sports cal- 


Writers Offer Opportunities For Limit- 
ed Number To Join Their Ranks. 

The Green Blotter was once again ini- 
tiated into another year of service when 
it was called on Thursday night to ab- 
sorb a number of truly absorbing prod- 
ucts coming from the group's best pens. 
Due to leave the campus for Dr. Stru- 
ble's home at eight, the six veteran 
members were momentarily delayed by 
circumstances over which Sylva Harcle- 
rode had no control. Her apology was 
accepted and the club members set sail. 

At Struble's the spots seated them- 
selves about the fireplace and settled to 
the business of providing for the selec- 
tion of new members, of listening to the 
contributions of the old, and enjoying 
Mrs. Struble's refreshments, in the order 

It was agreed that those student liter- 
atti desiring admittance to the organi- 
zation should submit compositions in 
any of the creative fields to Dr. Struble 
before the next meeting on the thirty- 
first of October. Announcement of the 
vacancies and the method of competing 
should be announced to the freshmen 
in morning chapel, it was decided. 

Headscop, Louis Straub, who led these 
proceedings, next called upon the writers 
to read what they Had prepared. Helen 
Xetherwood responded first with a short 
story which she entitled "Such Is Life," 
of a girl who sought to impress a stran- 
ger with her faulty French only to dis- 
cover at the end that he was a Univer- 
sity French professor. Sylva Harclerode 
read two descriptive poems which she 
composed while fresh in the mood this 
summer at camp. In turn, David Yake 
presented an essay on "The Country 
Squire" of the Eighteenth Centuries, 
briefly describing some of the most in- 
teresting aspects of this historical field 
in England. Louis Straub finally proved 
the futility of dishonesty by the surpris- 
ing finish of his short story in which the 
policeman was induced to accept a bribe 
for the sake of his crippled son from 
the man who had run down and killed 
the boy, and was speeding away from 
the crime. 

Autumn Frolic 
Sponsored by Y 

Dance Last Saturday To Re- 
place Hallowe'en Affair. 

Football games and society programs 
have filled the College calendar to such 
an extent that it was impossible for the 
Y to arrange a date for their annual 
Hallowe'en Dance, and so they substi- 
tuted for it an "Autumn Frolic," which 
was held in the gym last Saturday night. 
The gymnasium was decorated appropri- 
ately with corn shocks, autumn leaves, 
Jack o' Lanterns and balloons. 

Prof. Stokes and Miss Miller chaper- 
oned the dance. 

"Peck" Leech and some of his boys 
provided the music. They started off 
with college songs and a grand march 
in which the chaperones and the more 
congenial couples participated. The spec-

Life Work Recruits 

Visit Widows Home 

Group Plans Weekly Deputations 
During Year. 

On last Sunday afternoon a deputa- 
tion from the local Life Work Recruits 
journeyed to Lebanon to present a reli- 
gious program for the benefit of the 
guests of the Widows' Home on Oak 
Street. Three young ladies of the dele- 
gation contributed musical talent. 

Irma Keiffer presented a piano selec- 
tion entitled "Gardens in the Rain," by 
Debussy. Dorothy Zeiters played a se- 
lection known as "Caveliera Rusticana" 
on the cello, and Rose Tschopp sang two 
vocal numbers, one entitled "My Task" 
and the other "A Dream of Paradise." 
A very inspiring address, "The Salt of 
the Earth," was delivered by Adam Big- 
ler. Other members of the deputation 
were: Sarah Lupton, Ethel Houtz, Eli- 
zabeth Bender, Elwood Needy, Harold 
Beamesderfer, and Louis Straub. 

At the business meeting on October 
10, Elwood Needy, chairman of the de- 
putation committee, reported that at 
least one deputation was planned for 
each week. Programs are to be held in 
the Sixth Street, Derry Street, and sev- 
eral other United Brethren churches in 
Harrisburg, in the United Brethren 
churches in Lebanon, and in several 
churches near Annville. The organiza- 
tion is also planning to present a page- 
ant some time this year. 

Mr. Dietrich Rempel 

Gives Talk 

Mr. Dietrich Rempel, who gave such 
an interesting talk in chapel on October 
8, entertained the German Club with a 
longer and more informal discussion the 
following Tuesday evening. 

His recital of his escape from Russia 
in 1922 was very graphic, especially his 
narrow encounter with death. Several 
times he was saved only by his ready wit 
and glib tongue. His brother and he had 
many interesting experiences including 
being disguised as Cossacks, pretending 
to be secret service agents, and working

Lebanon Valley's Blue and White 
gridmen avenged a 1934 defeat at the 
hands of Muhlenberg's Mules by com- 
pletely outplaying the 1935 edition of the 
Mule outfit to register a 19-6 victory 
under the arclights at Allentown. 

John Tindall, Blue and White back, 
featured in the Valley offensive by gal- 
loping 75 yards for the first of three 
touchdowns chalked up against the 
Mules. Early in the second quarter Tin- 
dall took a Muhlenberg punt on his own 
25-yard line and broke away behind 
beautifully-formed interference for a 
touchdown jaunt. 

This six-point sprint opened the scor- 
ing, for the evening and sent Lebanon 
Valley into a lead which they never re- 
linquished as they registered their sec- 
ond triumph of the season by the same 
19-6 count that rolled up against the 
Kutztown Teachers in the curtain-raiser 
two weeks ago. 

The Flying Dutchmen, playing their 
only night game of the season, bettered 
Lafayette's performance by scoring 13 
first downs to Muhlenberg's 6. Last week 
Lafayette was able to defeat the Mules 
by the narrow margin of a single touch- 
down. The L. V. C. — Muhlenberg game 
was contested on a rain-drenched field, 
but the gridiron was not muddy enough 
to hamper the attack of either team. 

Lebanon Valley's second touchdown 
was scored shortly after Tindall's long 
run, Ken Hance placing the ball on the 
one-yard line on a 14-yard off-tackle 
slant and going over the final stripe two 
plays later. 

The final Lebanon Valley score came 
in the final quarter. Tindall broke loose 
for 29 yards to put the ball in scoring 
position on the one-yard marker, and 
Walmer lugged the leather into the end 
zone. Tony Rozman kicked the extra 
point after the last six-pointer. 

A fourth Lebanon Valley touchdown 
was imminent when the final whistle 
blew. The ball was in the possession of 
the Flying Dutchmen on the Muhlenberg 
one-yard marker when the fray ended, 
so that further humiliation of the Mules 
was prevented. 

Muhlenberg threatened the Lebanon 
Valley goal but once during the entire 
game, and on that occasion they suc- 
ceeded in scoring their lone six-pointer 
of the evening. Two long forward pass- 
es, one from Farrel to Geschel for 40 
yards, and another from Farrel to Brown 
for 30 yards, placed the Mules in scoring 
position of the Valley 6-yard line. An- 
other forward, from Farrel to Geschel, 
completed the touchdown march. 

Some idea of the complete advantage 
enjoyed by the Valleyites is gained from 
the fact that the reserves were sent into 
the game near the end of the first half 
and throughout the rest of the fray, 
Coach Jerry Frock never reinserted his 
full first string lineup. 

Next Saturday the Flying Dutchmen 
will make their first home bow of the

The Drexel Game 

This Saturday brings us our first home football game of the year, the 
Drexel game. We have a good football team this year and we're mighty proud of 
it. We've watched this team swamp two opponents and nearly upset the Penn 
State crew on foreign fields ; now we're anxious to see them perform at home and 
among friends. The Drexel game is not the most important game on our schedule 
this year, but after all the "co-op" boys did set us back last year and from the 
looks of things the contest will be plenty close. 

The point is that Lebanon Valley is going to beat Drexel on Saturday in a 
good game and we'll all be out to join in the excitement. At last we've got a 
cheer leader with a voice on him that would make a rabbit stand up and box with 
the ambition and push to do something about the student body's lack of "ye olde" 
enthusiasm. That's what we like around here — somebody that does something 
(whether they make a lot of noise about it like this "guy" does or not!). 

Making Shakespeare Interesting 

Aside from their high entertainment value a more serious function of the 
Company headed by James Hendrickson and Claire Bruce soon to appear on the 
campus, can be best described by an editorial comment in the "Daily Tar Heel" 
of the University of North Carolina, home of the celebrated Carolina Playmakers. 

"Last night's performance by James Hendrickson and Claire Bruce and their 
Company marked the first appearance of a professional dramatic organization on 
the University campus in many years. And the audience was delighted with their 
presentation of Julius Caesar. 

High school courses in the drama have produced in most of us a decided 
prejudice against Shakespeare. The traditional pedantic methods of dull analysis 
and dreary lecture have destroyed all the beauty of Shakespeare and other drama- 
tists for us; in its rightful place lingers memories of long, boring hours of dis- 
spirited class room discussion by teachers without enthusiasm for their subject and 
of wearying reports by students to whom the disinterest of the instructors had 
been transmitted. 

It is not unnatural that these memories should produce in us an actual ab- 
horrence for Shakespeare and other literary figures studied in a similar manner. 

The organization which appeared here last night is making a praiseworthy 
effort to present the vital, stimulating works of Shakespeare in all of their artistic 
beauty to the high schools and colleges of the country. Attendance at a single 
Shakespeare performance by competent actors is more beneficial to the student 
than innumerable classroom recitations and lectures of the dull, academic sort 
usually included in high school courses in the drama" 


Susquehanna University is inaugurat- 
ing a "new deal" in social activities on

Heretofore no informal socials were

coming fall months.

A new sport is introduced to the east- 
ern part of the United States by the co- 
eds of Gettysburg College. Bowls is a 
very old game originating in England in 
the thirteenth century and brought to 
this continent by the early settlers of 
New York. It was from this game that 
Bowling Green, a park in New York 
City, derived its name. At present the 
sport is quite popular in the Middle 
West, where it is played equally well by 
men or women.

Mr. Sloane does not believe in the

In an extensive survey among the 
students of Haverford College, last 
June, some interesting facts were re- 
vealed. The poll showed that the aver- 
age student bought two suits a year, 
with $32.20 the average price paid. Sixty- 
six per cent owned typewriters, forty- 
seven per cent of the students preferred 
Parker's fountain pens. One half prefer 
Palmolive soap and Squibbs tooth paste. 
Fifty per cent of the students owned ra- 
dios, and one half of the colleg.'ans wore 
glasses. Incidentally the poll showed that 
those owning radios received better 
grades. * * * *

Despite a storm of protest the authori-

United Brethren Church held at York last 
week, Elwood Needy and Paul Cunkle, 
ministerial students of Lebanon Valley, 
received their annual conference licenses. 
Two former students, Daniel Thompson 
and Charles Hoke, were awarded similar 
licenses. Harold Hollingsworth and 
Harold Beamesderfer also received their 
annual licenses from the East Pennsyl- 
vania Conference several weeks ago. 

This annual conference license allows 
the recipient to perform all the duties 
of a regularly ordained minister, such as 
marriage and baptism. He may also 
hold a pastorate charge and command a 
salary. To be ordained into the ministry 
a four-year seminary course or a special 
three-year course must be pursued.

Claire Bruce 

An occasion of real importance to theatre lovers of Lebanon Valley College 
is the appearance of James Hendrickson and Claire Bruce and their company jg 
Julius Caesar and Macbeth to be given at the Conservatory on the Chapel stage 
on Wednesday, October 23. 

This exceptional company of professional players now on their ninth season 
have appeared in the leading schools and State Universities throughout the United 
States, delighting their audiences with their vivid portrayals and beautifully 
staged performances of Shakespearean plays. This will afford the student body an 
opportunity not only to see the greatest of all English literature but also an even- 
ing of genuine pleasure and entertainment in the theatre. 

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tues., Oct. 8 — The other day a couple 
of boys in the dorm played bridge from 
11:00 A. M. until 10:00 P. M. with two 
friends. That must have been interest- 
ing. One boy's name was Rosy and I 
believe the other started with K. Last 
Friday I walked into a restaurant and 
saw two girls looking for something 
under a table. Johnny and Pat were 
there, too. This is old news but I don't 
get around like some people and find out 

Wed., Oct. 9— Last night at supper I 
saw someone at the Dean's table get a 
second bowl of soup, and I asked the 
waiter if I might have more. He said, 
"NO!" One of the fellows is supposed 
to have had his tonsils pulled out the 
other night in the vault (a drugstore 
booth). I don't believe it. Was to see 
"Lou" but she didn't come. I was 
peeved. She told me later I'm too young 
to have dates. Guess she's right. 

Thurs., Oct. 10— Kalo Smoker. The 
profs told some stories which I didn't 

Fri., Oct. 11— Got out of class early 
when prof got hungry. I like these profs 
a great deal. They had two maniacs in 
chapel this morning instead of those 
three girls who were always saying 
"O. K., let's go." 

Sat., Oct. 12— Got letter from home. 
Mama's knitting me some long under- 
wear for winter. That's sweet of her. 
Grandma and Aunt Rachel each sent me 
their love and a shiny new dime to 
spend. Gee, I believe I'll save them to 
buy Judy a valentine next February. 
Danced with June tonight but some 
pseudo-aristocrat from Lebanon took her 
for the last number. 

Sun., Oct. 13— I don't like these little 
caps we must wear. I think they're hor- 
rid. My ears will never fit inside when 
it gets cold. 

Mon., Oct. 14-I'd like to meet this 
traveling salesman I hear so much about 
Judy waved to me on campus. Believe 
I'll have a heart to heart talk with her 


Tues., Oct. 8 — Had a "bull session" 
tonight. There's talk of a real murder. 

Wed., Oct. 9 — Ran plumb into wall in 
dorm tonight, bounced off, and fell on ray 
konk. Clumsy idiot ! Sent baby doll to 
Andy in dining hall for a joke and some 
fool waiter anointed it with vinegar. One 
of the girls got a date with a boy who 
was her steady two years ago. What a 
moratorium ! We had to use smelling 
salts to revive her. Bob and Joe are 
sore about it. 

10 — Public speaking to- 


Thurs., Oct.

works in a Lebanon department store. 
There's a nutsy picture hanging in one 
of the boy's dorm rooms. Saw it t0 '

Two of the veterans who will be in the 
Drexel lineup on Saturday, Knapp and 
Potter, were largely instrumental in the 
8.7 defeat dished out to L.V.C. by Drex- 
el last year. A beautiful coffin-corner 
kick by Potter led to the safety scored 
against the Blue and White early in the 
game, and later in the game the same 
shifty back registered a touchdown for 
the Dragons. Knapp, quarterback, was 
a constant threat to the Lebanon Valley 
defense throughout.

el: Curry, L.E., number 33; Captain 
Hoff, 214-pound lineman, L.T., 1; Smul-

Y. M. C. A. NOTES 

Since the last issue of La Vie, the 
Lebanon Valley College Y. M. C. A. has 
held three meetings — two of a religious 
nature, and the other a business session. 
On the evening of October 8, the "Y" 
cabinet met to dispose of a number of 
business affairs. Harold Beamesderfer, 
the treasurer, presented the budget for 
the year. Arrangements were also made 
for the Autumn Frolic, which was held 
in the Alumni gymnasium last Saturday 
night. A number of other business items 
of minor importance were also taken 
care of. Drs. Stonecipher and Butter- 
wick, two members of the faculty ad- 
visory committee, were present at the 

On the following evening the regular 
mid-week prayer meeting was conducted 
in the Philokosmian hall. Adam Bigler, 
a member of the Senior class, delivered a 
very lively talk entitled "Don't Swallow 
the Camel." 

On Sunday night Dr. H. H. Shenk, 
professor of history, spoke at the "Y" 
vespers service in the men's dormitory. 
He told in a convincing manner of the 
true value and significance of the Young 
Men's Christian Association, and related 
many anecdotes and reminiscences con- 
cerning prominent figures in the "Y." 
Dr. Shenk has had much active service 
in the Y. M. C. A. work, and his address 
was greatly enjoyed because of the first- 
hand matter he presented.

To Entertain Frosh

cursory investigation revealed the fact 
that it was just Jack Glen's asthma! 

Samuel Harnish, the president of 
Philo, sonorously welcomed the boys to 
the affair. He then introduced L. Straub 
as the messer of ceremonies. This per- 
sonage, alas, needs must recite a home 
grown limerick! He was all set to pre- 
sent an encore when his alert mind dis- 
covered that what he had taken to be 
applause was nothing but the audience 
slapping some misquitos ! The M. of C. 
then introduced in turn Danny Bartolet, 
Ross Sheesley, Henry Palatini, Chief 
Metoxen, and Lester Krone, all of whom 
gave stirring talks concerning the merits 
of their organization. 

Then after the entire group had risen 
and joined their voices in singing the 
Alma Mater the curtain was pulled back 
and — lo, there were the eats. The re- 
mainder of the evening was spent in 
Mohawking by both man and boy. All 
indications are that the party was a 
great success. 



We strolled nonchalantly into the 
Kreamer Bros.' establishment a few 
nights ago to look over some merchan- 
dise. As we entered the building the dul- 
cet strains of music greeted our ears. 
Since the tones were not of the funeral 
variety, we felt constrained to investi- 
gate. We found three demure lasses — 
two with fiddles and one at the piano — 
making all the music. They were popu- 
lar co-eds from dear old L. V. C, every 
one of them. They had been hired by 
the management to furnish rhythm for 
the patrons. Standing close at hand, its 
lid thrown back in mocking invitation, 
was a luxurious casket. Our initial im- 
pression was that it had been placed 
there for the convenience of any cus- 
tomer who might be overcome by the 
music, but we soon learned that it was 
simply on display. 

What in the world is this secret so- 
ciety known as "Pi Sumf" that they 
have started over at the men's dorm? 
We can see one of the signs all the way 
over here from West Hall. We have a 
pretty good suspicion that it is the 
exact opposite of the Phi Alpha Epsilon 

* * * * 

Hurrah for the new cheer leaders ! 
Do Schnozzle Durante and Ed Wynn 
collect any royalty from Mr. Saylor? 
Laugh ! — I never laughed so much since 
the baby ate all the raisins off the sticky 
paper. But we yelled too ! We expect 
to see Saylor, Tillford and Co. right 
out in front at the Drexel game. 

* * * * 

A member of our fair set was showing 
a visitor around her home town last 
summer, it is said. 

"Don't you think our city is laid out 
beautifully?" Gracie is supposed to have 

"Yes," the visitor answered. "Yes, I 
do like the way Camp Hill is laid out. 
How long has it been dead now?" 


The c lass of 1939 held a short busi- 
ness meeting on Thursday noon in 
the Administration Building. The 
following subjects were discussed: 
"Dink" rulings, respect to upper 
classmen and faculty members, and 
payment of damages done to a car 
during the numeral fight. 

Autumn Frolic

tators on the balcony were having a 
good time breaking balloons, so the 
strings were cut from the balloons dur- 
ing one of the dances for general enjoy- 
ment. A spot dance and several John 
Paul Jones dances contributed to the 
informality of the affair. 

Pumpkin pies and cider were served 
to the hungry dancers during intermis- 
sion. During the entire evening there 
was a great deal of lively talk and 
laughter, which seemed to show that ev- 
eryone was having a lot of fun. 

It is hoped that the crowd enjoyed the 
slight diversion from the regular rou- 
tine which is usually followed at campus 
dances. However, whole-hearted cooper- 
ation from the group is necessary to 
make such a dance a success. In the fu- 
ture, let's have every couple on the floor 
entering into a general good time. It 
won't harm anyone's dignity and will be 
a big boost to those who are directing 
the program.

Outdoor Supper And Entertainment 
Provided For Guests. 

With the new students as guests of 
honor, Clio held its traditional hike to 
Kreider's last Thursday evening. Meet- 
ing at North Hall the girls, each clutch- 
ing a lemon and peppermint stick, 
walked to the estate in groups. After a 
short walk over the grounds the Clios 
built the fire before the stone bench by 
the stream. 

Supper came first. About a hundred 
and twenty girls received their rations 
of baked beans, sandwiches, cakes, pota- 
to chips, pickles and cocoa. 

Then came the program. After Louise 
Shearer, Clio's president, had welcomed 
the guests, "Jerry" Harkins was intro- 
duced. With uke accompaniment "Jer- 
ry" sang songs — anything you'd wish for. 

A group of Sophomore girls next pre- 
sented that touching and tragic drama, 
The Light-house Keeper. Beatrice Za- 
mojski was the light-house keeper, Lu- 
cille Maberry, his wife, and Carolyn 
Kohler, his son. Louise Stoner made a 
most vicious villain, while Hazel Hemin- 
way was the doctor and Isabel Cox, the 
undertaker. Most wierd, but fitting, mu 
sical accompaniment was provided by 
Sylva Harclerode with her autoharp, and 
Betty Bender read the narrative. 

Finally, after "Bunny" Zamojski put 
on a little skit and "Jerry" Harkins 
again sang, to the tune of candied ap 
vies, the group moved down to the lake 
side to await the accustomed visit of the 
goddess Minerva, the patroness of Clio. 
Over the narrow foot-bridge came three 
./bed figures: Grace Naugle, as Miner 
va, Marian Leisey and Martha Faust as 
her attendants. Minerva renewed her 
pledge of loyalty to Clio and remind 
ed her of the significant symbols her at- 
tendants bore — the owl, to represent 
wisdom, and the olive branch, the symbol 
of peace. Finally, as her gift for the 
year, she passed a spark from her taper 
to Louise Shearer, the president, who in 
turn lit the candles of all Clio officers. 

As Minerva and her attendants went 
: from whence they came, Clio and 
her guests, by the light of a full moon, 
returned to the campus until another 
tryst with Minerva should bring them 
back again. 

In addition to the girls, Kappa Lamb- 
da Nu had, as its faculty guests, Miss 
Myers, Mrs. Reynolds, Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. 
Derickson, Mrs. Carmean, Mrs. Richie, 
Miss Duffy, and Miss Henderson. 

Sally Meckley and her committee, in- 
cluding Ruth Bright and Hazel Hemin- 
way, arranged the supper. Maxine Ear- 
ley and Jane Shellenberger composed the 
program committee. 


It would seem that "Hans" will have 
to add traffic directing to his other police 
duties in the Conservatory. Surely some- 
thing must be done about the congested 
thoroughfare leading to the Chapel now 
that Wig and Buckle is rehearsing 
Christopher Bean, Junior play rehearsals 
are in the offing, and Professor Camp- 
bell's organ practices become more fre- 
quent in view of his coming recital. 
* * * * 

We hear from good authority that in 
the event that The Late Christopher 
Bean, Wig and Buckle's first benefit 
play, is financially successful, the Con- 
servatory is willing to contribute dollar 
for dollar for the purpose of purchasing 
lighting equipment for the Chapel stage. 
This equipment, providing of course that 
the plan materializes, will be used for 
Conservatory activities as well as for 
future dramatic productions.

Notes on Books 

An abundance of delightful new ma- 
terial has been placed in the library this 
year, so that every one may be there to 
his heart's content. There are morsels 
to suit the literary tastes of all— thrill- 
ing dramas, tragic romances, smatter- 
ings of philosophy, religion, science, and 
the latest reports on international af- 

Here are just a few which have lately 
been placed within the reach of L.V.C. 

J. L. Bolderston's "Berkeley Square." 
Here is a pleasing three-act fantasy 
based upon the theory of the relativity 
of time. Peter Standish, living in the 
America of the present, wishes he could 
live in the 18th century England. He is, 
therefore, transported back to the role 
of his grandfather in 1784 when, as a 
young man, he came to London to court 
Kate Pettigrew. Peter's strong twenti- 
eth century remarks and his even more 
stronge ability to read the future make 
everyone fear him, with the exception 
of Helen, Kate's younger sister, with 
whom he falls in love. Upon Peter's re- 
turn to modern life he brings the eter- 
nal memory of Helen's love with him. 
The plot is suggested by Henry James' 
posthumous fragment, "The Sense of the 
Past." It has ingenious and effective 
stage action, wealth of humor, and is 
abundant in satirical comment. 

Theodore Marburg's "The Develop- 
ment of the League of Nations Idea.'' 
Here are brought together the corre- 
spondence conducted by Mr. Marburg as 
chairman of the Foreign Organization 
Committee of the League to Enforce 
Peace, and the various documents per- 
tinent to the founding of the League of 
Nations. It is a very worth while con- 
tribution to the steadily increasing liter- 
ature on international organization. It is 
important to the contribution of history 
of the World War and it throws much 
light on the propangandist group whose 
main ideas later took form in the hands 
of Wilson in the covenant of the League 
of Nations. 

Ferenc Molnar's "Plays." There are 
twenty plays of this Hungarian play- 
wright, including "Liliom, The Guards- 
man," "Fashions for Men," and "The 
Swan," all of which have been produced, 
as well as seven one-act plays, which

Meet Together 
Friday Evening 



Dance Held In Gym After Program 
Ajid Refreshments In Philo Hall 
Record Crowd Attends 

In honor of the freshmen and new 
students, Delphian and Philokosmian Lit- 
* rary Societies held a joint session, 
Friday, Oct. 18, in Philo hall. The 
three groups were exceptionally well 
represented, filling the Philo hall to ca- 
pacity. The events of the evening were 
in the order named : a program given 
jointly, refreshments provided for joint- 
ly and joint dancing, (cheek dancing ta- 
boo this season.) 

The program featured the Delta, 
Lambda, and Sigma trio, Dr. Louis 
Straubavitski, Martha Elser, violinist, 
and the famous stage and screen actors 
Greta Heiland, Ken Eastland and Cur- 
win Dellinger. ... da! da! 

Master of Ceremonies, Lester Krone, 
announced the performances. Delta, 
Lambda, and Sigma were called forth to 
give us their novel interpretation of the 
new melody "Red Sails in the Sunset". 
It wasn't bad considering they sang with- 
out a piano . . . not half bad. Dr. Louis 
Straubovitski introduced himself to the 
audience and while he was speaking the 
ambulance was heard without (that's 
what made it tough). The patient was 
borne into the operating room on a 
stretcher. We here wish to take this 
space and opportunity to extend our ap- 
preciation to the bearers, who took their 
parts so ably and we wish to say here 
that they show latent dramatical talent 
—but to continue with the program. 

A screen was placed between the pa- 
tient and the audience. Each and every 
delicate move of the skilled Straubovit- 
ski was cast upon the screen. He admin- 
istered a local anaesthetic to the cranium 
w 'th a heavy mallet and proceeded to cut 
°Pen the patient with a pair of shears. 
Then finding the patient suffering from 
Sail stones he excavated. Complications 
ar °se and the "Doc" found the patient 
j^ing from a sock in the stomach which 

e removed. From the nature and size of 

e sock we could hardly blame anyone 

ut Harnish. The patient slowly came out

Soph Tug Team 
Out Pulls Frosh 
In Record Time 


Gongloff And Mates Wet Under- 
Classmen in "Quittie" Before Big 

Muscles bulged ; faces contorted ; 
;rowds cheered; crowds jeered; twenty 
men fought furiously and ten men got 
wet. Yes, the annual Soph-Frosh tug- 
)f-war has been placed again in the 
irehives of the college. In the presence 
)f the largest crowd attending a tug in 
the past three years the Sophomores 
)roved their superiority of strength by 
lragging the first year men through the 
■nud and water in two of the fastest 
ugs on record. The Sophs worked for 
two and a half minutes on the first tug 
iefore they wet the Frosh, and after 
joth teams had changed to the opposite 
oanks of the Quittie the second tug got 
under way. This time the '38 men 
trained for three minutes and fifteen 
econds before ducking their opponents. 
\fter the struggle the rope was cut into 
ections and each member of the winning 
earn was given a piece for his scrap- 

The failure of the Freshmen, who 
von the toss, to select the better side 
'or the first tug, their lack of experience, 
ind their inferior weight account for 
heir defeat. The Sophomores were right 
here with everything that the Frosh 
veren't and held the edge over the losers 
tnyway you look at it, but this is not a 
consolation message to the defeated. The 
Men's Senate is to be commended this 
/ear for its selection of the time of the 
ug. Saturday morning is apparently the 
most opportune time for the tug since 
many more people can attend it than at 
he evening hour that it has been held 
leretofore. The vital statistics of the 
vent follow:

Co-eds Vie In 
Treasure Hunt 

Girl's Hiking Club Sponsors 
Outing Thursday 

On Thursday afternoon at 4:30 the 
Girls' Hiking Club, a new organization 
on the campus, met on North Hall steps 
for a treasure hunt. 

They were informed by Miss Hen- 
derson that a thief had made off with 
some valuables leaving behind strips of 
grey cloth, probably ripped off in his 
hasty getaway. And so the club set out, 
searching high and low for grey strips 
of cloth. 

They found them on poles, trees, and 
bushes. They followed them around the 
tennis court, around West Hall, back 
to North Hall up to the railway station, 
over a dusty road, through a barnyard 
to Steinmetz's Woods. They scurried 
through leaves and briars and finally 
came out at the reservoir. Hazel March 
discovered the treasure hidden in an old 
pipe. The girls all made a grab. There

"Blossom Time" Given 

At Hershey Monday 

Well Known Shubert Operetta Recalls 
Many Favorite Tunes. 

For those who were fortunate enough 
to see Messrs. Shubert's immortal oper- 
etta Blossom Time at the Hershey 
Theatre last Monday, the evening will 
remain immemorable. 

The action of the operetta takes place 
in Vienna at the time when Franz Shu- 
bert was comparatively unknown, and 
where he lived a very Bohemian life with 
a few of his artist friends. The main ac- 
tion is centered around Shubert and the 
young lady whom he supposedly loves. 
She is a daughter of a very respectable 
family and is a sweet, shy girl in her 
late teens. Since she is so naive and 
Shubert so shy it is hard for them to 
understand each other. When they 
finally do, it is too late, for her heart 
has been won by another. Poor Shubert 
is left alone with only his music to com- 
fort him. 

The story is a true one of Shubert's 
life. He died at the early age of thirty- 
one, poor, unkown and unwept. The play 
is sprinkled with some of the most 
beautiful music of operetta. Perhaps 
the most haunting is "The Song of 

Every one of the musical numbers was 
rendered very competently, and the 
drama was equally well done. 

The comedy relief was found in the 
young lady's father who was the pro- 
verbial clown of the play.

The faculty and students of

father, Mr. John D. Wilt, 
passed away recently at Port

Green Blotter Club Assures Candi- 
dates Fair Consideration. 

Blue And White Disappoints Large Crowd Of Followers In First Home Game 
As Drexel Aerials Baffle Secondary. 

A seemingly over-confident band of 
Flying Dutchmen, pointing tuward New 
York and the powerful Fordhani Rams 
and completely overlooking an air-mind- 
ed Drexel Dragon from down Philadel- 
phia way, fell prey to that fiery monster 
in the opening home encounter of the 
season last Saturday on the college field. 
The alert and speedy Dragon struck 
twice in the first half and clung tena- 
ciously to its surprisingly-gained advan- 
tage through a stormy closing session 
in which the Dutchmen repeatedly forced 
the Dragon back on its haunches, but 
failed to force it into submission. 

The Yalleyites completely outplayed 
their underdog opponents in the last 
thirty minutes of play, but they failed 
to register a single counter to offset the 
dozen tallies netted by the first-half at- 
tack of the Drexelites. 

Lebanon Valley went into the fray 
top-heavy favorites to win handily, espe- 
cially when it was definitely learned that 
Sam Potter was forced to view the bat- 
tle from the sidelines. However, the 
highly-regarded Blue and White attack 
failed utterly in the opening half and 
lacked the decisive punch after inter- 
mission, when they threatened the Drex- 
el goal on numerous occasions, but could 
not register a six-pointer. The most 
dangerous assault on the Dragon forces 
carried to the four-yard line, where the 
Drexelites halted the advance when an 
alert secondary defender intercepted a 
Lebanon Valley forward pass. 

Drexel played heads-up football all 
the way. The pass defense of the Dra- 
gons was a sharp contrast to the ineffec- 
tive Valley protection of the aerial route. 
A deceptive overhead attack was used 
with a great deal of success by the grid- 
ders coached by Walter Halas, while 
pass interceptions ended most of the L. 
V.C. thrusts at the Drexel goal. 

The Dragons were not slow in demon- 
strating their efficiency in the forward- 
pass department of the offense. After a 
pass interception had halted the only 
first-half threat of the Flying Dutch- 
men, the Drexelites went right to work 
and registered their first score after n 
56-yard advance, with a spectacular 
catch by Graf of one of Knapp's aerial 
heaves, completing the touchdown march. 

The Dragons started from their own 
14-yard line with Pete Fox, Potter's un- 
derstudy, clicking off 25 yards on a run- 
ning play. A forward pass from Knapp 
to Graf placed the oval on the 8-yard 
line, first down and goal to go. A line

The Green Blotter Club has several 
vacancies which it hopes to fill this year 
with very competent members. All stu- 
dents are invited and urged to try out. 
The contestant may write any type of 
creative work that he wishes. As a 
guide for those people who are trying 
out, the following are given as common 
types: parody, melo-drama, short story, 
one-act play, any type of poetry, im- 
pressionistic description, biography, es- 
say, or any other type the writer may 
wish to use. 

When the themes are handed to Dr. 
Struble the name is attached to the man- 
uscript on a separate piece of paper. 
The manuscript is then given a number 
and the name is discarded so that the 
contest may be judged impartially. 

At the crucial meeting each member 
is given a manuscript to read aloud to 
the other members of the Club, a vote 
is taken on it after it has been judged, 
and each theme is given the same consid- 

At the end of the meeting the votes 
are counted and the manuscripts receiv- 
ing the most votes are the winning ones. 

"L"Club Dance 
Held Saturday 

Jack Dress And Band Fur- 
nish Dance Music. 

Saturday evening, October 19, a dance 
was sponsored by the Varsity "L" club 
in the gymnasium of the Annville high 

The gym was decorated in blue and 
white streamers and with pennants from 
many colleges. About 80 couples danced 
to the music of Jack Dress but the win- 
some Miss Anna Kane did not seem to 
be present as had been predicted. 

Jack Glen and his partner drew the 
door prize, a handsome Lebanon Valley 
pennant. The door prize is an innova- 
tion at "L" club dances and it seemed 
to be very popular. This can not be said 
of the "no smoking" rule however. 

The chaperons were: Dr. and Mrs. 
Derickson, Miss Janet Miller, and Prof. 
M. L. Stokes. The committees for the 
dance were : Raymond Patrizio, Dance ; 
Boyd Sponaugle, Hall ; Frank Rozman, 



Dr. Samuel H. Derickson was the 
speaker in the Y. M. C. A. vespers serv- 
ice at the Men's Dormitory last Sunday 
evening. The largest crowd to attend a 
"Y" meeting this year was present to

Bulletin Boards and Announcements 

With the advent of the rule that no routine announcements will be read m 
Chapel a change will have to be effected in the habits of the ordinary average 
member of the student body. How many times have those zvho have tried to hold 
a meeting of any sort on the campus been met with the statement, "Why, 1 didn't 
know there was going to be a meeting. Why didn't you announce it in Chapelt" 
As a result of this the harassed chairman of some such organization had given 
up liope of ever having an adequate attendance by merely posting an announce- 
ment on the various bulletin boards, and so he and other chairmen put all their 
jaiih in a Chapel notice. 1 he result of this was a veritable deluge of Chapel an- 
nouncements, i/o many that now the faculty has seen fit to restrict the privilege. 

'1 his change is for the best for even in the heydey of the Chapel announce- 
ment the negligent person still had the comeback, "1 wasn't in Chapel this morning 
and so 1 didn t hear the notice read." Now, if you miss an announcement it wilt 
be your own fault. The best thing to do is to cultivate the habit of reading the 
bulletin board every day. There is a bulletin board in the Ad building under glass, 
over which Mr. Shatter holds full sway, which will contain the more important 
daily notices, and there are bulletin boards galore all over the campus to tune care 
of the rest. . 

W e suggest that one of the boards opposite the main entrance be reserved for 
current notices and that all advertising be confined to the other one beside it. This 
should help to promote interest in reading notices. 

Square Meal For Band 

Ever since the band has been organized there has been a rather negative re- 
sponse to appeals for a.d to that organisation. Truly, financial backing zvas af- 
forded in its early beginnings, backing that has been repaid out of funds that the 
band itself has earned, so that now it is standing on its own legs, financially in- 
dependent of the college. However, it can be considered a living, growing and 
vital part of campus lije, sufficiently so to merit aid of a quality hitherto un- 
solicited. 1 he reference is to the type of meals served its members on football 
trips. 1 his year, the band is paying, out of its meagre but carefully budgeted 
treasury, its ozen transportation to football games. Surely, if the band goes this 
far on its own in making these trips, it deserves at least one meal per trip better than 
a cold lunch consisting mainly of sandwiches. Our band is one of the best ad- 
vertisements the college has. Certainly it is worthy of the comfort of one decent 
meal on these trips it makes during football season. 

Other Campuses 

Neckties in Stanford classrooms are 
taboo. . . . Eighty per cent of Skidmore 
college girls refuse to admit they have 
even been kissed by boys. . . . Princeton 
has made class attendance voluntary as 
long as students do a reasonable amount 
of class work. Formerly each student 
was allowed eighteen cuts during the 
year. . . . Sophomores at Haverford 
undergo comprehensive examinations of 
2,725 questions. It takes twelve hours to 
complete the work. ... Physicists at Co- 
lumbia have measured the neutron. The 
answer is: 0.0000000000001 inches. .. Co- 
lumbia university has a regular waker- 
upper. For a certain amount paid in ad- 
vance, he makes the rounds, shaking out 
sleepers in time for class. The height of 

the university's social season is also peak 
Jiue for his income. . . . The University 
jf Texas will in time become the richest 
institution of learning in the world. It 
owns two million acres of land that will 
yield oil and precious metals. ... At the 
Sorbonne, 700 year old Parisian univer- 
sity, there are no football teams, frater- 
nities, or student proms. . . . Ten thou- 
sand students at a Los Angeles relief 
school are being paid to go to school — 
and are docked if they cut classes. . . . 
Any student at Colorado university must 
attend Sunday School for three years 
if he is caught drinking. . . . At Ohio 
State a machine which automatically cor- 
rects and grades papers has been invent- 
ed. . . The prize answer in a history final 
at the University of California, when 
the students were asked to give the Mon-

Vagaries will appear frequently. It 
will be of a literary nature — amiable, 
good-humored and pedestrian, with no 
more of an object than to discuss this 
and that. Pedantry will be forsaken as 
the domain of those venerable biblio- 
philes in zvhose dens we daily languish, 
and a general tone of intimacy will 
prevail. Without more ado zve offer 
item one: 

Did you ever realize the pleasure there 
is in being sick, in being able to lie com- 
fortably and quietly, and to let your 
thoughts wander? One night I couldn't 
deep and lay for a long while thinking. 
1 recalled many things : a fight in first 
*rade with a fat boy ; baseball games I 
;aw with Dad; the neat little red cot- 
tage on the point where John, the old 
;ailor, lived ; and then — Richard Wag- 

This Richard Wagner is a little Ger- 
man who lives here. He is about five 
feet tall, erect, and he struts about like a 
game-cock. He has a jovial face, red 
cheeks and nose and an air of cheerful- 
ness which is infectious. He is poor but 
educated, and lives happily. I met him 
n the library one day. He approached 
:ne grinning like a child at a circus and 
isked, "Haf you a book on chess?" Tak- 
ng him for a German by his appearance 
ind his accent, I interpreted chess to 
mean jazz and, replying, "Yes." I showed 
him the books on music. He pointed to 
one and said "Dot's my name." I was 
tartled, thinking he was the author, and 
isked him if he had written it. "Ach, 
10," he replied smiling broadly, and 
landed me the book. It was a discourse 
>n the opera by Richard Wagner. I 
aughed at my mistake and began to hunt 
or a book on jazz; the little fellow in- 
terrupted and explained that he wanted 
i book on the game of chess and not 

"On chess?" I said. "Oh, now I un- 
lerstand !" 

"Ches, on chess," he asserted. 

We had no such books in the library 
o I offered to bring him one of my own 
to use. For this he was very grateful, 
\nd we began a conversation. 

He had been born in Prussia, had 
ravelled all over Europe, and, after 
working as a machinist in Russia, had 
:ome a year ago ' to the United States, 
'ie told me much about his travels and 
hen our talk drifted to languages. His 
■xplanation of the uses of various lan- 
guages and the animated expression in 
his eyes as he gave an illustration of 
■ach I shall never forget. 

"German," he said, "is the language of 
luthority." At this point he barked in a 
low, guttural voice the German com- 
mand : 

"Still gestanden !" 

"English is the language one should 
use to talk to his geese." I objected and 
he pronounced a sentence in English 
which sounded like nothing but the 
honking of geese. He went on to explain 
that French is the language of society, 
Spanish the language of religion and 
Hungarian the language of love. 

"Haf you a girl?" he asked. 
"Why, yes," I replied hesitatingly. 
"Iss she purty?" 

"Dot iss nuddings," he replied, and 
pointing knowingly to his forehead and 
rolling his large blue eyes the little fel- 
low said : 

"Dot iss vat counts. Get a girl you 
can talk mit." 

He arose then and bade me good-bye 
and I never saw Richard Wagner again. 
But I'll never forget his last words. 

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tuesday, October 15 — Oh, joy! Judy 
.stopped and talked to me after chapel 
and 1 bad a class and 1 missed it, but 
i didn't tell her. She said, "How are 
jou, Rudy?" and 1 lelt all goosey pim- 
ples, and then she asked ine to go with 
her for a coca-cola. 1 couldn't hardly 
say "Us," but at last 1 did. Gee, she 
Lulked all the time and said not to take 
die too hard, and that she thinks I'm 
swell. Can you beat that? Well, slie 
asked me then if I'd go walking with 
tier Sunday night, and 1 got so excited 
that sin- asked me if I had bees in the 
basement, which 1 though was terribly 
iunny! Then she ran away all of a sud- 
den and 1 was all tired out, but I hadn't 
said a word. 1 must write letters now 
10 Mamma and Grandma and Aunt Ra- 
chel, and tell them all about her. I know 
i won't sleep tonight. 

Wednesday, October l(i — I couldn't eat 
ail day and 1 kept thinking of Judy. 1 
ciiun't sleep either, and 1 feel what the 
boys call "washed out." Didn't see her, 
out 1 walked under her window a while 

Thursday, October 17 — Slept a little 
better. Joe says she's just kiddin' me 
and that she wouldn't like me unless I 
liked children. Gracious! I'm not think- 
ing of marriage. just yet. A fellow in a 
dark suit asked me some embarrassing 
questions in the basement and I asked 
hhfl why he wanted to know. He said, 
'i tn correlating," whatever that is. 

briiday, October 18 — I can hardly wait 
until Sunday. 1 believe Judy's resting 
ior it because 1 haven't seen her. The 
prof asked me in class where the Israel; 
ites went next and I said, "To the Land 
of Goshen." "To the Atlantic Ocean?" 
cried he. I hadn't known he was afflicted. 

Saturday, October 19 — Went to foot- 
ball game. A boy on the other side was 
injured, so they brought him some wa- 
ter. Some uncouth band member said he 
needed a trough because he was a horse. 
I thought the boys fought fiercely and 
it was a shame they didn't win. 

Sunday, October 20 — Rats! I guess 
I'm a sissy. Judy and I walked out to a 
place called Kreider's. It was full moon, 
and when we got there it looked like a 
big partj r was being held. Well, Judy 
said, "O. K., let's go,"* and I got so 
scared I said goodbye and ran home to 
the dorm and here I am. I guess Judy'll 
never look at me again. Oh, 1 wish I had

That ought to help. 

Wednesday, October l(j — They're t a[]

nicknames, one girl who was "Bunny" j 
now "Peter Rabbit." Can you beat Hi 

Thursday, October 17 — "Lou" asked 
Tampa to borrow a buck from her and 
buy her a coke. I think that's poor tech 
nique. I hear that B. D. plays a wick e( | 
jazz piano. More power to her. s 0nie

That doesn't make me mad. Date with 
Ray for tomorrow night. Grace and 
Lois are having a big week-end at F

Saturday, October 19 — What a lousy 
football team. A bunch of cream puffs. 
Nobody laid out. This morning saw Ca- 
rolyn trying to swim on tennis court. 
Pride, you know, goes before a fall. Af-

Sunday, October 20 — That knock- 
kneed, bow-legged, sawed-off, hammered- 
down lady finger ran off with his tail 
between his legs after I spent an hour 
getting in the mood. Didn't get a per- 
mission either until the dean gave up in 
despair. If anybody finds out about this 
I'll get the horse-laugh until doomsday. 

Monday, October 21 — Saw Smith clean-

, first downs. Yet they didn't have 
necessary lighting edge and were 

'^fought from the opening kickoif to 
2- final whistle. They just did not play 
, a wake football and lacked the vit'il 
the several occasions when 


nch o n 

did threaten the lair of the Dragon. 

It would certainly not be exaggerating 
t0 say that the play of the Flying Dutch- 
men in the first half was absolutely list- 
less and spiritless. They were swept off 
their feet by a Drexel team that was ei- 
ther under-rated or inspired to better 
play than it had shown earlier this sea- 

The astounding defeat should waken 
the Valleyites to the fact that there are 
no set-ups or breathers on the Lebanon 
Valley schedule this year— and that 
statement goes for every one of the re- 
maining five games. Followers of the 
Blue and White are undoubtedly looking 
for improved showings in the rest of the 
grid battles. 

There is probably no doubt in any- 
one's mind about the strength of Ford- 
ham, the next Lebanon Valley opponent. 
Last week the Rams defeated a highly- 
regarded Vanderbilt aggregation by a 
score of 13-7. They have lost only one 
game out of four, and that to the Pur- 
due Boilermakers. 

The commendable showing of the 
Franklin and Marshall outfit against the 
New Yorkers does indicate, however, 
that the Blue and White should be able 
to give the Rams plenty to think about 
°n Saturday. F. & M. held Fordham to 
1 one-touchdown margin of victory. 

The Flying Dutchmen have been un- 
successful in two former tries at the 
Fordham eleven, losing in 1927 by a 13-3 
c °unt and in 1932 by a 53-0 score. In 
tn at last meeting a devastating forward 
Passing attack accounted for the size <-<f 

the R 

am total, but lengthy defensive 

dr ills against the aerial game during the 
past w eek should have made the Valley- 
ltes less vulnerable overhead.

Some idea of the complete dominance 
of the Flying Dutchmen during the sec- 
ond half can be gained from the follow- 
ing statistics: 

First downs: Lebanon Valley: 2 — 12— 
14; Drexel: 6 — 1 — 7. Yards gained from 
scrimmage: Lebanon \ alley: 10 — 9b — 
103; Drexel: 47 — 9—56. lards gained

yards gained: Lebanon Valley: £>U — Zo± 
—254; Drexel: 113—22—135. The first 
iigures are, of course, for the first half, 
the second figures for the second half, 
and the third for the totals. Lebanon 
V alley suffered a loss of 40 yards 
through penalties, while Drexel lost 15 
Oecause of infractions of the rules. 







A quartet of backs and a wingman who have seen plenty of service in the Lebanon Valley gridiron 
contests to date are here pictured. Tindall and Kress have been dividing the quarterback assignment , with 
the former galloping 75 yards for a touchdoivn against Muhlenberg and the latter tearing loose for several 
nice gains i>i the disastrous Drexel game. Lute and Hancc are halfbacks in their first year zvith Lebanon Val- 
ley varsity. The accurate heaving of Lutz was a constant threat to the Drexelites in last week's encounter, 
zvhile both of these shifty backs have been consistent ball-carriers in the L. V. C. running attack. Brozen is 
an end from Lemoyne who promises to offer Valley opponents plenty of anxious moments. 

bad given the Dragons possession on the 
L.V.C. 34-yard marker. Another aerial, 
this one from Fox to Knapp, covered the 
remaining distance to touchdownland. 

After the intermission the Flying 
Dutchmen showed a marked improve- 
ment, and outscored their rivals in first 
downs by no less a margin than 12 to 1, 

and yet could not score. Three sustained 
attacks, one for 38 yards, one for 29 
yards, and one for 84 yards, all fell short 
of the goal line. 

The 38-yard march carried the Flying 
Dutchmen to the Dragon four-yard line 
early in the fourth quarter, but a pass 
interception concluded the threat. The 

29-yard advance placed the oval on the 
Drexel 31-yard marker, but Hance was 
thrown for a 10-yard loss on an at- 
tempted forward pass to end the march. 

The 84-yard advance was launched 
from Lebanon Valley's own 4-yard line 
after a beautiful coffin-corner kick by 
Drexel. Passes figured prominently n

glimpse a few intimate scenes of a 
great man's life and are privileged to

Agnes Morris Speaks 

At Joint Devotions 

On Wednesday, October 16, the weekly 
prayer meeting was held in Philo Hall. 
A good attendance of freshmen and 
other students was noted. Martha Baney 
read the scriptures. Donald Worley then 
gave a delightful solo, and was followed 
by Agnes Morris who presented the 
main talk of the evening on the theme 
"To Thine Ownself Be True." The 
speech proved helpful and inspiring. 

For the benefit of those new students 
who are not familiar with these weekly 
meetings a few words of explanation. 
The programs are sponsored and pre- 
sented by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. 
C. A. Each society alternates in pre- 
senting the program. All students are in- 
vited to attend these meetings as regular- 
ly as possible.

he applied the mallet to the Doc's head. 

Martha Elser was then featured in an 
extremely technical violin solo which 
ivas beautifully interpreted. Her accom- 
panist was Charlotte Stabley. Delta, 
Lambda, and Sigma again appeared, this 
time singing, "Reflections in the Water." 
What co-operation ! What an effect ! 
Colossal ! And last but by far the best 
was the one act tragedy entitled "The 
Monster" starring Ken Eastland the 
newly wed Greta Heiland, his ball and 
chain ; and the "Monster" enacted by 
Curwln Dellinger, (the cur). The de- 
voted husband read of the monster in 
the weekly news and when he left for 
town fearing for his wife's safety he 
gave her a revolver to protect herself. 
When he was gone the monster was 
Johnny-on-the-spot and barged into the 
heroine's room. She tried to appear non- 
chalant and in a brave but timid voice 
she said, "Hi monsie ol' kid". Things 
went on from that point and when the 
husband returned he found his wife 
holding "monsie" in her lap and making 
love to him. In his richest and most ef- 
fective vocal expression he reverberated, 
"Shoot, darling, shoot !" Since he was 
asking for it she shot him. Boom ! The 
moral to this is . . . don't cry over spilt 
milk, what the heck! 

After refreshments were served the 
mohawkers went down into the gym to 
dance away the evening to the rhythm 
of a select orchestra . . . (selected from 
available campus talent). The gym was 
invested in the blue and gold colors of 
Philo and scarlet and gold streamers of 
Delphian. More fun !

Campus Cuts 

Lebanon Valley is rapidly becoming 
modern. The abolition of Freshmen rules 
made this year was the first major step 
in this direction. Another advance to- 
wards the modern was made this past 
week with the discontinuing of reading 
routine announcements in the chapel pe- 
riod. Certainly we all are able to ap- 
preciate such an up to the minute ac- 
tion, especially when we learn that many 
of the larger colleges and universities 
are not privileged to attend chapel ser- 
vices every morning as we do. ... 

* * * * 

May we suggest that the "Please Use 
the Walks" signs are transferred to less 
prominent places. Many students find 
them an obstruction as they leave chapel 
to go to the Administration building and 
are forced to detour around them to 
walk on the grass. This is mentioned as 
a safety measure to those who endanger 
life and limb by tripping almost daily 
over these signs. . . . 

* * * * 

And still no editorial has appeared 
on the war in Africa. Other college pub- 
lication editors have siezed this choice 
morsel and have expounded pacifism to 
the n'th. degree. Even now many stu- 
dents the nation over are planning to 
walk out of classes at 11:00 A. M. No- 
vember 11th as part of a huge peace 
demonstration. Due to the "Double-cut" 
consciousness of all but the first year 
students, we do not expect such an oc- 
currence here on the campus. 

* * * * 

Just must mention Willa Cather's new- 
est. "Lucy Gayheart" is the title of this 
most interesting bit of fiction. William 
Lyon Phelps read the story at one sit- 
ting and has written its review for the 
New York Times. 

* * * * 
Mentioning a book reminds us to tell 

vou that another book bearing the title, 
'Twenty Thousand Dreams Interpret- 
d," is being prepared here on the cani- 
)us. The authoress is reputed to be the 
'resident of the "Jigger Board."

We wonder why they don't have intra-

why no one has as yet written a "De-

Clionians Plan 
Annual Affair 

Committees Have Anniver- 
sary Well Under Way. 

plans are being made for the celebra- 
j on of the sixty-fourth anniversary of 
t | ie CHonian Literary Society. Miss Vir- 


Summers, the anniversary Presi- 

dent has appointed committees which 
already begun to function. Dye to 
the fact that there is a football game 
at Newark, Del., the date scheduled in 
t he catalogue, the Saturday before 
Thanksgiving vacation, has been aban- 
doned. The activities committee has given 
the society the week-end following the 
vacation and the dance is scheduled for 
Friday evening, December 6. 

The committee to choose a place has 
already engaged the Abraham Lincoln 
hotel in Reading. The hotel boasts a 
recently renovated ballroom and promises 
to be a new and delightful place for 
college dances. Eleanor Engle as chair- 
man, Lucille Maberry, and Betty Kirk- 
patrick served on this committee. 

Gayle Mountz, Lois Harbold and Jean 
Harnish are choosing the orchestra while 
Sally Meckley with Ruth Buck, Hazel 
Heminway, and Jane Showers compose 
the favor and invitation committee. 
Marian Leisey and Kathleen Poole are 
inviting the faculty guests.

With gaiety and sociability befitting 
those who have just returned from pleas-

students came back to school Monday 
to make the crowning feature of the 
tootball holiday a grand success with 
a dance in the gym. 

Jack Schuler's orchestra (or at least 
Part of it) furnished the syncopation for

Prof. Campbell 
To Play Recital 
On Moller Organ 


Conservatory Artist Will Officially In- 
augurate Big Four-Manual Instrument. 

The Inaugural Recital of the new 
Four-Manual Moller Organ will be given 
on Thursday evening, November 14, at 
8:15 o'clock in the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Conservatory of Music, by R. Por- 
ter Campbell. 

Mr. Campbell, after having received 
his Bachelor of Music degree in Organ 
and Piano from the Lebanon Valley 
College Conservatory of Music, studied 
with Aloys Kramer of New York and 
Arthur Friedhan also of New York. He 
then studied with the world renouned 
organist and teacher, Pietro Yon, both in 
New York and Italy. Now he is study- 
ing with the well known instructor of 
Organ, Mr. McCurdy of Philadelphia 
Curtis Institute of Music. 

While Mr. Campbell was abroad, he 
gave recitals in St. Peters, Rome, Milan, 
and Settimo Vittone. Since that time 
he has been known in the United States 
by the recitals he has presented here. 
He is especially well known to Lebanon 
people, for he is Organist and Choir- 
master at St. Luke's Episcopal Church 
there, after having filled the same posi-

Chemists Test Steel 

Our chemistry laboratory is doing 
steel analysis for the United States 
Navy Department. All steel that is 
used in the manufacture of turbines 
a)id battleship equipment must be 
analyzed by other than company 
laboratories before the Navy will ac- 
cept it. Dr. Bender receives between 
ten and fifteen analyses a week. These 
tests show as high as seven elements 
contained in one piece of steel, which 
increases the durability and strength 
of the iron. 

Mrs. Stevenson Heads 

Foreign Study Group 

L. V. Professor Is Director Of Ex- 
cursion To Sorbonne. 

Dr. Stella J. Stevenson, professor of 
French who was given a year's leave of 
absence, is acting as Director of the 
University of Delaware's Junior Year 
Abroad. Students, in their junior year 
at any college, who measure up to cer- 
tain standards in grades may go to 
France for a year and take courses at 
the Sorbonne, return to America and 
finish up their senior year in their home 
college. There are about forty students, 
representing Vassar, Smith, Bryn Mawr, 
Mt. Holyyoke, and California schools, 
under Mrs. Stevenson's tutelage. Not all 
of these students are studying French. 
Some are studying Law, Economics, 
History, etc. A considerable part of the 
tour is for cultural purposes. The first 
six weeks is being spent in tours visit- 
ing the Chateaux and interesting places, 
without any actual studies. At the end 
of October they will enroll at the French 
University at Paris. 

Mrs. Stevenson is primarily a social 
adviser and dean of the girls. She is 
directly responsible for permissions and 
regulations concerning their activity. She, 
herself, is not taking any courses at 
present but is particularly interested in 
getting back in touch with French cul- 
ture and literature. Later she may do 
some research work. 


Classes Meet On Campus And At

There has been an increase of about

Mrs. Fordam Visits Campus 

Lebanon Valley College is an Educa- 
tional institution for men, women, and 
goats. "Nanny", it seems, strolls about 
the campus as nonchalantly as any 
"coed", nibbles her leaves of learning 
from low branches and bushes, and even 
appeared for breakfast in North Hall. 

But Amy Mantrith and Helen Bartlett 
were not at all gracious — Terrified at 
finding a goat on the stairs they thought 
it must have been the cocoa they drank. 

While they were warning others to stay 
away, Mabel Hummel, another freshman, 
and not so wary, rushing downstairs, 
blindly ran into the innocent cause. 
Thoroughly crushed at such a reception, 
poor "Nanny" baa— aaahed for help. 
Some gallant heroes in white coats ran 
to her rescue, soothing her ruffied feel- 
ings as they led her out the door. Ques- 
tion : Who left "Nanny" in North Hall?

Clever Comedy Chosen 

As Junior Produetion 

The Junior play "The Admirable 
Crichton" is a smashing, hilarious come- 
dy of the modern age. It tells the story 
of an English family, first at home, try- 
ing to solve the servant problem. Shall 
they continue to have their social teas 
once a month for the servants or shall 
they keep them at arm's length? The 
honorable Crichton, who is a thorough- 
bred servant, is opposed to the tea, be- 
cause being on an equal basis with his 
Master is not proper and not what he 

During the final tea the ladies of the 
house — Mary (Lois Harbold), Agatha 
(Grace Naugle), and, Catherine (Mar- 
gery Smith) — are planning a yachting 
trip with their father Lord Loam 
(Charles Kinney) and are looking for 
one ladies maid to take care of the three 
of them. This falls to Tweeny (Maxine 

The next act takes place on a desert 
island where Crichton (Kenneth East- 
land) has become the head of things 
through natural superiority. He has 
chosen Tweeny as his favorite. Ernst 
(Wm. Earnest) falls in love with 
Tweeny and haughty Lady Mary with 
Crichton. Many comical incidents ensue, 
and finally the fourth act brings us back 
to England where the family is again

Club Discusses 

Crisis Abroad 


International Relations Club Meets At 
Stevenson's To Begin Year's Work. 

The International Relations Club 
gathered at the home of Dr. Stevenson 
for its first meeting on the evening of 
Oct. 22. In the business meeting of the 
club, which preceded the program, the 
convention of all International Rela- 
tions Clubs was discussed. The club 
would like to send a delegation to Syra- 
cuse University for this convention. 

The evening's program was concerned 
with this issue: — Is Italy justified in her 
encroachment against Ethiopia? Mr. 
Hostetter took the affirmative side of the 
question and Mr. Reber the negative. Af- 
ter informal talks by Mr. Reber and Mr. 
Hostetter, the question was held open 
for group discussion. At the end of an 
interesting argument, the club voted on 
the question with the decision that Italy 
was not justified. • The discussion then 
rambled over various current events of 
interest. Many opinions were, so to 
speak, aired. The latter part of the dis- 
cussion was impeded by the munching of 
apples, cookies, and candy. By the end 
of the evening, I. R. C. was well start- 
ed on an active year's work. 

When Fordham's athletic schedules 
were arranged, the sages who determine 
the destinies of the varsity eleven decreed 
that October 26 be set aside as a day of 
rest. The strong University of Pitts- 
burgh grid machine was to be opposed 
on November 2, so the Ram stars were 
not to be roused from their pleasant 
dreams of the slaying of the Panthers by 
bestirring themselves to play a tough 
battle on that fine October afternoon. In- 
stead Coach Jim Crowley was to hie his 
second-stringers over to the Polo 
Grounds for a bit of track practice at 
the expense of Lebanon Valley. 

But alas ! These worthy athletic mo- 
guls forgot to consider the fact that the 
flying Dutchmen from L. V. C. might 
also have something to say about this 
anticipated touchdown parade. In place 
of their day of rest, these Fordhamites 
found themselves in the midst of a very 
surprising football game, and even the 
highly-regarded Ram first-string com- 
bination had to disturb itself more than 
a little in grinding out a 15-0 win over 
the Valleyites before 10,000 awestruck 

The Flying Dutchmen outplayed the 
Fordham second-stringers, yielded very 
little ground to the first-stringers, and 
came back in the closing minutes to as- 
tound the Rams by making the longest 
sustained march of the day to seriously 
threaten the Fordham goal. 

Lebanon Valley took the ball on the 
20-yard line after Ladroga's opening 
kick-off had sailed into the end zone. In 
three plays, with Lutz carrying the ball, 
the Blue and White advanced 20 yards, 
but the Fordham forward wall held on 
the L. V. 40 and Lutz punted to the 
Fordham 29. The Fordham second- 
stringers who had started the contest 
were unable to make any headway 
against the Flying Dutchmen, and late 
in the first period, the first-string lineup 
was injected into the fray. 

Taking the ball on their own 42-yard 
line, the new eleven advanced the ball 
to the Lebanon Valley 4-yard line as the 
first quarter ended, Captain Maniaci, 
Mulrey, and Sorota doing most of the 
ball carrying for the Rams. With their 
backs to the wall, the Blue and White 
forwards braced as the second period 
got under way and held for downs in 
the very shadow of the goal posts. 
Kress booted out to the 42-yard line, but

formed from the freshman class, and 
they have plenty of pep and power. The 
sophomores also have two teams • the 
upperclassmen have barely managed to

What's Right? What's Wrong? 

One of the best ways in which any newspaper can better itself is to invite crit- 
icism. This is a policy of the La Vie Collegienne. And we have received com- 
ments of various sorts. It has been said that cw paper has been tardy in report- 
ing news events, especially things that are going to happen — and we have been 
attempting to alleviate this by reorganizing our system of collecting news and by 
being more on the alert. It has been said that our paper contains too much "f unny 
stuff" — and we have cut down and improved the news value of our humor. It has 
been said that we have been neglecting departmental news and the alumni — and 
we are endeavoring to do justice to these valuable sources of our news. 

But all in all we would like to know even more of the tastes of our reading 
public. We are sincere in this and are anxious that the contribution box in the 
library be made use of more frequently by those who have fault to find or those 
who have suggestions to make. 

Articles of this nature dropped in our contribution box should bear the name 
of their authors and, should they be printed, the author's name will be withheld if 
he so desires. If you have any ax to grind with the La Vie Coixegienne, get it off 
your mind by dropping us a line! 



Those who attend the "Y" Vesper 
meetings, which are held every Sunday

Shades of 

"They strutted and fretted their hour 
upon the stage, and now are heard no 
more." The doughty Macbeth, the im- 
perious Caesar, the conniving Brutus, 
the black-hearted Lady Macbeth are all 
gone, but a few tales remain to tell. 

As Cassius was bitterly exhorting Bru- 
tus to butt up against the imperator, a 
solemn, single-minded billy-goat ap- 
peared behind stage with the obvious 
intention of ambulating into the Roman 
garden to investigate proceedings. For- 
tunately he chose the symmetrical legs 
of one Edgar Messersmith, Roman Sen- 
ator, as a gateway to the scene of ac- 
tion, and having advanced his carcass 
halfway through the Collossian gate was 
rudely jolted when the aforesaid states- 
man perched his senatorial dignity sud- 
denly upon his bearded highness' back. 
The mob (not engaged at the time; in 
fact, not until Mark Antony's funeral 
oration), threw itself upon the intruder, 
carried him into the lady's dressing 
room, and hitched him to a piano leg 
where he was last seen, ruminating upon 
his fate. 

Although we. were privileged in having 
the famous David Byerly to disport him- 
self as Fleance, such is not the good for- 
tune of all audiences as this commen- 

tator was informed. At a previous 
formance of Macbeth the services 


six-year old had been solicited in 


terests of Fleance, and instead ^ 
plying, "The moon is down," to the

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tuesday, October 22 — Saw Judy after 
lunch at Post Office. Didn't speak to her. 
I really don't believe she wants me to. 
She lifted her head way up in the air 
and looked the other way r . Am going to 
New York Friday with some boys in a 
frightful old wreck of a car. Heard 
Judy's going with Al. 

Wednesday, October 23 — Went to see 
Julius Caesar. It was horrible. They 
stabbed a man and had him lying in a 
coffin on the stage. Saw Macbeth in the 
evening and wonder of wonders ! — Judy 
was in the play dressed like Queen Gui- 
nevere, and sitting with some ferocious- 
looking men. 

Thursday, October 24 — These boys and 
girls play a funny game on North Hall 
steps. It looks like hop-scotch. Finally 
they stand in front of the door, talk a 
while, and then the girl runs into the 
dorm. Was hit with football by some 
ruffians who I heard were practicing for 
:i Frosh — Soph football game. 

Friday, October 25 — Some fellow was 
passing out advertising material in cha- 
pel this morning. I took a handful of 
slips and a fellow took them from me 
and wrote Savior & Tilford all over 
them. He threw them into a box later. 
Leaving at 2:00 P. M. for New York 
and game. 

Saturday, October 26 — Got into New 
York at 10:00 P. M. Three flat tires 
and a broken axle on way. Took a sub- 
way to game. Had to crawl under a 
board to get to train, and nobody took 
my nickel. Asked somebody about it on 
car and everybody started to laugh. Lost 
game, 15-0. Went with boys to see shows 
at the Republic and Central show- 
houses. We went next to a Polish dance. 

Sunday, October 27— Got up late. Saw 
(Ira nfs Tomb and Statue of Liberty. 
Went into automat at 5:00 P. M. to eat 
and — Holy Gee ! there were Judy and Al 
from school. Judy said, "Why, hello, 
Rudy," and then Al pulled her away 
and took her out. Honestly, I never saw 
a girl look so tired. Well, I guess she's 
just not for me. Left for home and got 
in 2:00 A. M. Monday morning. 

Monday, October 28 — Andy asked me 
to take his girl to dance tonight. He 
said I was harmless enough. I said, 
"You'd be surprised if you knew me, 
Andy." Wonder what he thinks of that. 
Peggy and I had a good time anyhow. 


Tuesday, October 22 — Going to New 
York with Al, and then to Boston with 
Johnny to see Harvard — Dartmouth. 
Guess I can work it. Gave the simp the 
cold shoulder at the Post Office when he 
didn't notice me. I'll fix him. Going to 
super in the Shakespearean show tomor- 

Wednesday, October 23 — Some smooth 
boy in that company. Believe I have him 
eating out of my hands. He sure fell for 
the old line. That prof is sure the 
world's champion cornerstone layer. He 
unveils a monument in each class. Be- 
lieve I'll take more history. 

Thursday, October 24 — We got nine 
couples together for a party, but we 
can't get the Riding Club. Darn shame. 
Ate breakfast with the actor this morn- 
ing and got his picture. Wow! Holdup, 

Friday, October 25— Left 10:00 A. 1 
for New York with Al and another cou- 
ple. Hit the old burg at 2:00 P. M. Left 
Al and took train for "Bean-town." > Iet 
Johnny at 10:00 P. M. Dinner, mJ teL

Lebanon Valley's great showing at the 

olo Grounds last Saturday gave metro- 
litan sports writers quite a jolt. Be- 
j. re the game, they were practically 
' jnimous in expressing the belief that 
Fordham — Lebanon Valley game 
nld be nothing more than a touch- 
. wn parade for the Hams. However, 

f ter the game, the same writers were 
lavish i» thcir P raise 01 tlle fighting 
plying Dutchmen and acclaimed the sus- 
tained march put on by the Valleyites 
j lte in the game as the real feature of 
t]ie contest. They were not backward in 

sserting that the Blue and White out- 
lived the Ham second-stringers and 
gave the first-stringers plenty of anxious 

* # » « 

The Fordham offensive rolled up the 
large total of 20 first downs, but as soon 
the play came inside the Lebanon 
Valley 20-yard stripe, the Hams found a 
good deal of trouble in continuing their 
advances. Lebanon Valley's offense put 
together nine first downs on its own ac- 
count, too, which is not a sloppy total 

f, 1r any man's football game. 

* * * * 

Despite the fact that the Fordham 
outfit possessed far more weight and 
manpower than L.V.C., there was only 
one Valleyite placed on the injured list 
as a result of the grueling battle. Peter 
jQipa, who started the game at fullback, 
suffered a wrenched knee on the third 

play of the game and had to be replaced. 

* * * * 

While Lebanon Valley was ruining 
Fordham's day of rest, the Cadets from 
Penn Military College had a real holiday 
from football activity and will come to 
Annville on Saturday primed to defeat 
the Flying Dutchmen in the game to be 
played on the college field as a part of 
the L.V.C. Homecoming Day celebra- 

* * » * 

Although the gridiron series with P. 
M.C. was started but two years ago, a 
strong rivalry has developed between the 
two schools, which promises a stiff battle 
f»r the entertainment of Valley follow- 
ers. In the first Penn Military— Leba- 
non Valley fracas the Flying Dutchmen 
deadlocked the Cadets, although the 
Chester outfit was expected to win eas- 
"7- Last year a spectacular run by Ross 
Sheesley counted a touchdown against 
tne Cadets and spoiled their record of 
having been unscored upon all season. 
The Cadets did win the game, however, 
to maintain their undefeated record 
fnr the season.

Undoubtedly next Saturday's game 
will be a struggle between two fine 
teams, but the Valleyites will have to 
show the same pep and dash that carried 
them into the Fordham game and avoid 
a letdown like that suffered in the Drex- 
el game in order to emerge victorious. 

Rams, Hard-Pressed, 

Triumph Over Valley 

(Continued From Page i) 

Maniaci got loose and returned the punt 
to the 24. Again Lebanon Valley held, 
however, the Flying Dutchmen gaining 
possession of the oval on the 18-yard 

Still another Fordham advance was 
stopped several minutes later when Kress 
intercepted a Ram aerial and returned it 
to his own 21-yard line. Kress got off 
a poor punt at this point, and a 28- 
yard gain by Maniaci and a completed 
forward pass put the ball on the Blue 
and White 9-yard line. Maniaci battled 
his way to the four-yard stripe, Lebanon 
Valley held for two downs, and Mulrey 
finally tabbed the first Ram touchdown 
on a delayed buck at the center of the 
line. Palau kicked the extra point to 
place Fordham out in front by seven 

Fordham added the second touchdown 
near the end of the first half when 
Maniaci hurdled the L. V. C. line from 
the two-yard stripe for a six pointer. A 
lateral pass play, Sorota to Palau, good 
for 23 yards, and a forward pass play 
from Palau to Sorota, had placed the 
Rams in scoring position on the Valley 
two-yard line. Palau's attempted con- 
version sailed wide of the uprights. 

The Fordham total was swelled to 15 
early in the third period. A quick kick 
by Palau was downed on the Lebanon 
Valley one-yard strip. Kress recovered 

his own fumble in the end zone and was 
tackled for a safety. 

The Flying Dutchmen's stirring touch- 
down drive came in the last quarter after 
a Fordham advance had been stopped on 
the one-yard line. Lutz, standing in the 
end zone, tossed a pass to Walmer, who 
slipped and fell on the Valley 21-yard 

A lateral from Kress to Hance gained 
eight yards, and Hance hit the center of 
the line for another first down. Lutz 
tossed another aerial to Hance for a 
gain of 28 yards. Kress lost a yard and 
Hance gained six on a lateral from 
Lutz. Another forward pass, Lutz to 
Hance, was good for an 18-yard gain. 
Kress was held for no gain, but Hance 
tore through the weak side of the line 
for a first down on the Fordham five- 
yard maker. Three running plays netted 
about a yard advance, and a Lutz pass 
was intercepted on the last down by 
Pearce, standing on his own one-yard 
line. The sustained march of the Val- 
leyites advanced the ball no less than 98 
yards for the feature drive of the day. 

Fordham kicked out of danger and 
another Lebanon Valley offensive drive 
carried the ball to the 22-yard line, where 
the Rams held for downs. Three Ford- 
ham runing plays were smothered and 
the game ended with the Rams in posses- 
sion of the oval deep in their own terri-

Student Teaching in Accredited 
Teacher Education Institutions of 
of Pennsylvania met in joint session 
in the Forum of the Education 
Building at Harrisburg on Wednes-

of preparation prescribed for the 
Master's Degree or its equivalent be- 
come a requirement for permanent 
certification for secondary school 

The theme for the afternoon ses- 
sion was : Some proposed steps for 
improving student Teaching in the 
Teacher education program. 

About one hundred representatives 
from the various institutions of the 
state were present. Those represent- 
ing Lebanon Valley College were: 
President Lynch, Doctor Reynolds, 
Miss Gillespie, Professor Grimm.

Notes on Book; 

A striking oil painting of Andrew 
Carnegie, the great philanthropist whose 
generous fund made possible our college 
library, was presented to the L.V.C. li- 
brary by the Carnegie Corporation of 
New York, in commemoration of the 
one hundredth anniversary of his birth, 
which will be celebrated Monday, No- 
vember 25, 1935. 

Then, too, along with that, the library 
wishes to call to your attention several 
new and fascinating books. The follow- 
ing are just a few of the number that 
have lately been received. 

"The Ghost Story Omnibus," by Jo- 
seph L. French. A weird and exciting 
company indeed is to be found in this 
omnibus. Ghosts of all sorts and shapes, 
terrifying and kindly ghosts, true and 
grotesque ghosts, famous and infamous 
ghosts, mournful and humorous ghosts. 
Anyone who can complete even the short- 
est ride and alight without a chill or a 
tremble is a hardy traveler. And rare 
is the reader who will not turn again 
and again to this thrilling assemblage 
of spectres. 

The book is made up of two famous 
ghost anthologies. "Great Ghost Stories" 
and "Ghosts Grim and Gentle." In it 
appear such famous writers as H. G. 
Wells, Conan Doyle, Oscar Wilde, Sir 
Walter Scott, Buliver-Lytton, Quiller- 
Couch, Thomas Hardy, Marryat, Gran- 
tier de Maupassant, and others. 

"Robinson Crusoe," by Daniel Defoe. 
It would be a curious pleasure to take a 
census of all the people anywhere in the 
civilized world who would admit un- 
blushingly they have not read or intend- 
ed to read Robinson Crusoe. The world's 
most popular and extraordinary tale of 
adventure is not a child's book. The so- 
cial satire, the reflections on morals and 
civilization of Robinson Crusoe, are not 
addressed to the immature reader. The 
boundless charm of the tale itself has 
gripped the imagination of many for 
these last two hundred years. 

This new edition which has just been 
bought is one of the finest to be had. 
It seems to make the tale just a bit more 
appealing to all those who previously 
rejected it. 

The adventures of Robinson Crusoe 
are said to be based on the actual ex- 
periences of a London mariner, a Cap- 
tain Selkirk. Be that as it may, the tale 
is true to us today and lives as it has 
lived for these past years. 

"The Arabian Nights," or "1001 
Nights," translated by E. W. Lane. Two 
hundred years ago, Galland, the famous 
French traveler and Orientalist discov- 
ered "The Arabian Nights." Since then 
they have been accepted as the most 

fascinating examples of the story-tell- 
er's art. Who, having read them, can 
ever forget these astounding stories of 
lion-hearted heroes and their madly loved 
ladies? Of silken-clad beauties who turn 
from the murmuring of amorous verses 
to the devising of diabolical tortures for 
erring lovers ! Where but in the East 
could love bloom so tenderly or distill so 
maddening a perfume! Only the passion 
and imagination of the Oriental could 
conjure up these stories of love and hate, 
poison and steel treachery as well as 
black magic.

of her favorite pet, a little fuzzy, white 
dog. Although he voiced in an extra- 
vagant way his canine joy at seeing her 
return after having been gone a week, 
she paid him not the slighest attention. 
Neither did she seem to notice the un- 
tidy state of the kitchen with its table 
piled high with dirty dishes and left- 
overs from man-made meals. Nor did 
she seem to see the sink, likewise piled 
high with dirty utensils which her lov- 
ing husband, kind though he was, had 
permitted to accumulate for her return. 
She walked with hesitating step to a 
large, old-fashioned mirror which hung 
beside the sink and looked into it. 

For a brief moment she stared as 
though it were impossible to believe her 
eyes. Then her face became distorted with 
a look of agonized horror. Her appre- 
hensions had been correct! She had 
feared for the worst when this strange 
feeling had begun to creep over her on 
the train. But what had she done to de- 
serve this? Her three brothers had died 
with it during the epidemic. The signs 
on ' her face were unmistakable. Those 
livid spots meant one thing — 

Smallpox ! 

Staring mutely at the condemning 
image in the glass, the stricken woman 
began to slump. She clutched frantically 
at the mirror, which came loose from the 
nail on which it had been hung and 
crashed on the linoleum. Then she fell 
heavily beside it on the floor in a dead 

* * * * 

"Oh no," the doctor informed the dis- 
tressed Mr. Gray in his comforting pro- 
fessional manner, "it's nothing at all ser- 
ious. She had a deep faint — that's all. 
She'd better stay in bed a couple of days, 
though, to recover her strength. It's 
fortunate that you came home early and 
found her when you did, or there might 
have been some grave consequences. 
She'll get all right. Rest is what she 

When the doctor took his leave Mr. 
Gray mopped his forehead, with his 
handkerchief and muttered to himself, 
"I'm a fool. I knew she was coming 
home this afternoon. I should have 
wiped- those catsup spots off the mirror."

alumnae. Louise Shearer greeted the as- 
sembly a ,ld introduced the features on 
the program. 

Gavle Mountz opened the program 
ff ith two charming numbers which were 
appreciated by the audience. Next, the 
Sophomores presented a most amusing 
sk it entitled, "And the Lamp Went 
Gut." Carolyn Kohler was the foiled 
villain; Isabel Cox, the winsome hero- 
ine; Hazel Heminway, the handsome he- 
ro;' and Lucille Maberry, the heroine's 
mother. Betty Bender performed the du- 
ties of the reader, while Sylva Harcle- 
nxle executed the various sound effects. 

Following the dramatic entertainment 
of the evening, the entire group joined 
in singing popular songs, accompanied 
by Grace Naugle. The refreshments were 
then served, consisting of pullman sand- 
wiches, ice cream puffs, chocolate ma- 
caroons, nuts, candy, and hot chocolate. 
College songs and dancing followed. 

There were many new students pres- 
ent, and the alumnae were received very 
warmly. Mrs. Lynch, Miss Myers and

«L" Club Holds 
Victory Dance 

Hotel Brunswick Orchestra 
At Home-Coming Frolic 

The second L Club dance was held 
Saturday, November 2, in the Annville 
high school gymnasium. The music was 
furnished by Johnny Peiffer and his 
Hotel Brunswick Orchestra and was, 
by far, the best on the campus this year. 

The dance was held to welcome the 
Alumni who had attended the Annual 
Homecoming Day, and also to celebrate 
the victory over the P. M. C. football 

The gymnasium was dimly lighted by 
bridge lamps, and davenports, chairs, and 
bridge tables graced the corners. The 
lighting method was a much better one 
than was used last time. 

The programs, which also served as 
admission tickets, were cleverly done as 
footballs in yellow paper. The dances 
were designated in football terms as : 
kick-off, off sides, forward pass, final 
whistle, etc. 

The dance was a very enjoyable one 
and we're rooting for more of them. 



Orchestra Also Featured At Sunday 
Night Devotions. 

Since the last issue of "La Vie" the 
Y. M. C. A. has held two meetings — 
one a business session and the other a 
devotional service. 

At the regular business meeting, which 
was held on the evening of October 29, 
the "Y" cabinet considered several mat- 
ters of interest and importance. Plans 
were discussed for the organizing of an 
orchestra consisting of dormitory stud- 
ents to furnish music for the Sunday 
night vespers' services. The committees 
for Dads' Day reported that prepara- 
tions were under way to make this event 
an outstanding feature of the year's 
"Y" program. Dads' Day, or rather 
Dads' Week-end, will be observed on the 
16th and 17th of this month. One of the 
chief attractions for the dads will be the 
Albright College game, which is to be 
played at Annville on November 16. The 
father and sons banquet is scheduled to 
be held on that same evening. Louis 
Straub, publicity manager for the Y. M. 
C. A., has been appointed toastmaster 
for the occasion. Plans for the "Y" 
conference which is to be held on De- 
cember 6, 7, and 8 were discussed. A 
set of resolutions expressing the cabinet's 
attitude toward war was also presented 
and weighed. These resolutions are to 
be incorporated in the report which the 
local cabinet will give at this conference. 
Elwood Needy presented a draft of the 
local Y. M. C. A. constitution for rati- 
fication. The constitution was accepted 
after numerous minor changes were 

The vesper service held Sunday night 
in the "Y" room was by far the best at-

Life Work Recruits 

Initiate Years Aims 

Deputations Conduct Services In Near- 
by Churches. 

On Tuesday evening, October 29, the 
Life Work Recruits met in the North 
Hall parlor, at which meeting Miller 
Schmuck had charge of devotions. He 
was followed by a special musical num- 
ber, "Brahms' Wal Z in A Major," by 
Robert Heckman. The speaker of the 
evening was Dr. -ie, who gave a very 
inspiring message on the subject, "The 
Place of Prayer in the World of Sci- 
ence.*' In the brief business meeting fol- 
lowing. Miss Render gave a report of 
the deputation service at Elizabethtown 
United Brethren church, at which service 
she presided. Devotions were in charge 
of Mr. McCune. Calvin Reber spoke on 
the subject, "Living Temples," followed 
by a vocal selection, "They That Sow in 
Tears," by Miss Summy, accompanied 
by Miss Kieffer. Adam Bigler pro- 
nounced the benediction. 

Plans were made for a deputation ser- 
vice at Brunnerville, November 3, at 
which time Life Work Recruits presid- 
ed over the Annual Rally Day program. 
Special musical numbers were rendered 
by Misses Tschopp, Zeiters, Elser, and 
Kieffer. Miss Bender gave a talk espe- 
cially for the children, entitled, "Being 
Friends." Rev. Grosz, pastor of the 
church, and student at L.V.C., presented 
the morning lesson. Adam Bigler was 
master of ceremonies and took charge 
of devotions. 

Plans are being made for an active 
year in deputational work for the or- 
ganization. Dr. and Mrs. Wilt invited 
the Life Work Recruits to meet in their 
home Monday evening, November 11.

The Lebanon Valley College Band did 
its bit toward entertaining the homecom- 
ing alumni Saturday evening by present- 
ing a concert in Engle Hall. Prof. E. P.

well attended by alumni and patrons of 
the college. The program was as fol-

Noted Speakers Feature In Well At- 
tended Seminar. 

Mrs. Mary C. Green, dean of women, 
attended the annual meeting of the 
Pennsylvania State Association of Deans 
of Women at the hotel Penn-Harris, Fri- 
day, Nov. 1. Mrs. Green reports that 
the meeting was more interesting this 
year because the large colleges and uni- 
versities were so well represented as com- 
pared to some former years when only 
high schools and small colleges were rep- 
resented. Thyrsa W. Amos and Mrs. 
Curtis Bok were the outstanding speak-* 

Friday morning at 10:30 an institute 
was held for new deans and high school 
deans. At 2:00 P. M. following the 
luncheon was the Panel Discussion with 
Thyrsa W. Amos presiding. She spoke 
most interestingly on the subject "Some 
Successful Ways of Combating Waste 
in Education." 

Mrs. Curtis Bok of Philadelphia spoke 
at 7 o'clock on the subject "Choice of 
Burdens." She said her subject may be

Flying Dutchmen 
scored a brilliant 7-0 victory over a vet- 
eran P.M.C. eleven last Saturday on the 
college athletic field to the total satisfac- 
tion of a large Homecoming Day crowd 
of followers. 

The Valley eleven took to the air in 
the opening half to complete the amaz- 
ing number of seven out of nine attempt- 
ed forwards. The aerial attack netted a 
touchdown early in the second quarter 
as the culmination of a 63-yard sustained 
drive made possible by the completion 
of four overhead heaves. 

A speedy, twisting runback by John 
Tindall of a P.M.C. punt carried the 
oval from the L.V.C 15-yard stripe to 
the 37, the touchdown-registering offen- 
sive attack setting sail from this point. 

A forward pass, Kress to Tindall, good 
for nine yards, led off the Valley attack. 
Kress made three yards and a first down 
on the L.V.C. 49-yard line on an off- 
tackle slant. Another running play net- 
ted two yards, and Lebanon Valley went 
into the air once again, the Kress to 
Fridinger combination registering a 21- 
yard gain and another first down on the 
P.M.C. 30-yard marker. 

A running play failed to gain, but a 
toss from Jonah Davies to Kress was 
completed, the receiver being forced out 
of bounds on the 3-yard line. On the 
next play, a bad pass from center 
bounced through Kress' legs, and the 
Valley halfback seemed hopelessly 
smothered way back on the 20-yard line. 
However, the Minersville lad somehow 
managed to propel an accurate forward 
pass to Boyd Sponaugle, who was stand- 
ing in the clear in the end zone and effi- 
ciently snared the pigskin for the only 
six-pointer of the game. 

Kniley's placement kick for the extra 
point sailed squarely between the up- 
rights to put L.V.C. out in front by sev- 
en counters. 

Only two other scoring opportunities 
presented themselves to the Flying 
Dutchmen during the sixty minutes of 
play. In the first period, Lebanon Val- 
ley had threatened when an advance car- 
ried to the Cadet ten-yard line. Passes 
also figured prominently in that advance, 
with a 36-yard aerial completed from 
Kress to Tindall and a 17-yard heave 
from Kress to Brown, placing the ball 
in scoring position on the P.M.C. 15-yard 

A running play was good for five 
yards to move the oval to the ten-yard 
line, but another running play was

Day Students— Attention 

The circulation of La Vie Collegienne has been giving us plenty of headaches 
lately. In the case of the Day students the problem has been particularly knotty. 
It seems that the papers arrive on the campus from the printers Thursday at 5 
p. m. This is too late for those papers which are to be sent out to Day students 
to catch the last Thursday mail after they have been addressed and sorted. There- 
fore, these papers at the very earliest do not leave Annville before Friday morning 
and reach their destinations late Friday afternoon or on Saturday. By this time 
the news value of the papers has decreased considerably. 

In an attempt to answer this problem the following plan has been suggested. 
A canvass of the Day students could be made by the La Vie circulation depart- 
ment and each student would be asked whether he would agree to having his copy 
delivered to him Friday morning just before Chapel in the Men's Day student 
room or in the Women's Day student room, as the case may be. If he should 
agree to this he would obligate himself to be on hand every Friday at the time of 
delivery and, on the other hand, he would be assured of an earlier delivery of his 
paper. If he does not wish to follow this plan his paper would be delivered as 
usual through the mails. 

This plan obviously has possibilities. What do you think of it? 


My La Vie is not delivered until Mon- 
day. If this is the fault of the circula- 
tion department, may it be corrected? 
Delivery four days after the date of is- 
sue indicates inefficiency either on the 
part of the circulation department or 
on the part of the post office. Please cor- 
rect this if possible. 



Dear Heffner, 

Thank you. You are one of the few 
who have used our contribution box to 
present your plea. No, we won't try to 
put the blame on Uncle Sam. You should 
get your copy by mail the day after is- 
sue and (in spite of the circulation de- 
partment) we'll see that you do. Also 
you might consider the proposal in our 
editorial column of this issue.

At 2:00 P. M. alumni and students 
were massed on either side of the band 
on the western section of the football 
field. The entire group cheered with t 
fervor rarely seen at games. For this 
the cheer-leaders, including Dave Ev-

The Student Prince 

Staged At Hershey 

A large number of Lebanon Valley 
students attended at Hershey last Tues- 
day evening the presentation of The 
Student Prince. 

The scene revolves around the Royal 
Palace at Karlsburg and the Inn of the 
Three Golden Apples at the University 
of Heidelberg. Prince Karl Franz, 
closely nurtured, has been promised a 
year of freedom from castle life, to be 
spent at the University of Heidelberg. 
Dr. Engel, a graduate of the University 
and closest friend and adviser of Karl 
Franz, is to accompany him. At the end 
of the year Karl Franz is to return to 
the castle, marry his cousin, Princess 
Margaret, whom he barely knows and 
become the slave of his country. At 
Heidelberg he meets and falls in love 
with Kathie, waitress at the inn who at 
the end of the year must marry her 
cousin, a storekeeper. 

Four months after his entrance at 
Heidelberg, Karl Franz was called back 
to Karlsburg. The king, his grandfather, 
was dying and the betrothal must be 
announced. Broken-hearted, the Prince 
and Kathie swear eternal love. Before 
the wedding, Karl, now king, returns to 
Heidelberg, where he learns that Kathie 
is marrying her cousin. His doctor- 
friend has died. All alone, he turns to 
Princess Margaret for sympathy and 
love, and the scene closes with the en- 
tire cast singing "Deep in My Heart, 

This operetta, written by Sigmund 
Romberg, is the greatest of all Am-

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tuesday, October 29 — Felt enervated 
and took a walk out to cemetery. It was 

Wednesday, October 30 — Almost all 
the faculty were in chapel this morning. 
Dr. Lynch spoke. This evening I walked 
into a room in the basement of the li- 
brary. The librarian came down and ac- 
cused me of ulterior motives and then 
threw me out. A girl sitting at the same

Her name is Audrey. 

Thursday, October 31— Fell asleep in 
chapel. Went to Lebanon tonight with 
some boys to see a parade. I was almost 
frightened to death at some of those cos- 
tumes. These fellows are terrible. They 
wanted to go in a movie without paying, 
but there were too many guards. 

Friday, November 1 — My prof went 
hunting today. I think that's an awful'y 
cruel sport. There was a riot in Ihe 
dorm tonight. The boys made a P.M.C. 
sign, which they said meant "Pardon My 
College," and then asked some girls on 
the balcony for pennies to buy coal-oil 
to burn the sign. That was ruthless 
waste in my opinion. 

Saturday, November 2— Went to game. 
One of my profs asked the coach to en- 
ter the game, but the coach said no. One 
of the boys brought a girl who looked 
just like the flower girl in La Boheme. 
There was a dance tonight, but I didn't 
go. I thought maybe "Bunny" would 
ask me, but she didn't. 

Sunday, November 3— Ross came into 
my room today and showed me a poem 
he wrote: 

Her teeth like pearls so pertly set 
In rows beneath the eyes of brown; 
I'll ne'er forget the day 1 met 
That lissom lass of Myerstown. 

And he went to the dance with her 
last night! He says he's in love. Gee! 
how I envy him. Guess I'll write one to 

Monday, November 4 — I like a boy 
named McCune. He knows Esther, and 
told her he's in paradise when he dances 
with her. I wish I could say things like 


Tuesday, October 29— Marianne is in 
a fix. She wants to meet a certain boy, 
but she doesn't know him. I'm going to 
give her a knock-down or fix it somehow, 
I know the egg. Can't see what she sees 
in him. 

Wednesday, October 30 — Took person- 
ality rating in psych lab today. Ruth 
rated "Doppy" perfect on aggressive- 
ness. That settles that. More power to 
them. House meeting tonight. Lou ex- 
plained new rules. Sophs got nothing 
on us. Can stay out till nine now. Watch 
out, men ! 

Thursday, October 31— Fell asleep in 
chapel. Marge is having a tough time 
with her Clio date. She told Myron fi> 
decide pronto or she'll fish in anotW 
stream. It's all fixed for Marianne. S>§

■ the P- M. C. hrst downs were gained 

through rushing, and one from penalty. 

* * * * 

Lebanon Valley completed seven out 
{ nine passes in the first half and seven 
ut of eleven during the entire game. 
These completed aerials gained a total 
of 131 yards. P. M. C. was able to com- 
plete but two of ten forwards attempted, 
and each of the successful heaves was 
good for a gain of but five yards. There 
were only three pass interceptions dur- 
ing the entire game, and all of these 
were made by the Cadets. 

* * * * 

L. V. C. gamed a total of 62 yards 
from scrimmage, but lost the high total 
of 48 yards for a net gain on running 
plays of but 14 yards. A chap named 
Russell was largely responsible for this 
fine defensive showing of the Cadets, 
although the whole P. M. C. line was 
plenty formidable throughout the game. 

Penn Military gained a total of 126 
yards from scrimmage and lost 30 for 
a net gain of 96 yards on running plays. 

* * * 

In total net yardage, Lebanon Valley 
outcounted the Cadets, 145 yards to 106 
yards, with the dazzling aerial attack be- 
ing responsible or the Valley margin.

Kress, handling the punting assign- 
ment for the Flying Dutchmen, booted 
two long kicks, one for 65 yards and 
another for 50, and registered an average 
of 38-3 yards on ten punts, measuring 
from the line of scrimmage. "Bud" Pol- 
lock, of the Cadets, also got off two 
long boots, one for 57 yards and another 
f°r 52, and averaged 39.2 yards on eleven 

* * * * 

Three nice runbacks were made by 
Johnny Tindall of P. M. C. punts. These 
runbacks were good for ,22, 17, and 17 
>" a rds, and the average runback of the 
e 'even Cadet punts was close to 6 yards. 
Runbacks of 25 yards, 14 yards, and 12 
i'ards were chalked u-j by the Cadets, 
w ho averaged a fraction of a yard bet- 
ter in the punt-returning department of 
th e game.

Three Lebanon Valley kick-offs av- 

47 yards, with the P. M. C. re- 
averaging approximately 20 yards.

r obably the most important statistics,

Ig h total yardage registered by the Val- 
ey forward pass attack, are those which 
l e l0w th e alertness of the Lebanon Val- 
^ y defense, and demonstrate the fact

'sties concerning the Cadet fumbles.

rate, it was a smartly-played football 
game on the part of the Blue and White, 
and the Valleyites vindicated themselves 
for their poor showing in the first home 
game against Drexel. 

* * * * 

Next Saturday, the Flying Dutchmen 
will meet St. Joseph's of Philadelphia 
in the sixth renewal of a gridiron rivalry 
which dates back to 1916. In the five 
games played in the past, the Flying 
Dutchmen have an unblemished record 
of five vitcories, each of which was 
registered by a comfortable margin. 

* * * * 

Last year Lebanon Valley ran rough- 
shod over the Hawks in the first half 
to pile up 29 points. The Philadelphians 
came back with 13 counters after the 
intermission, but the scrappy Hawks 
found the Valley advantage was too 
much to overcome. 

Four of the heroes of the gallant but 
futile second-half rally last year will be 
ready for service again this year. They 
are Fleming, Smale, Cheeseman, and 
Heimenz. Other veterans who will per- 
form in the St. Joe lineup are Mancaus- 
kas, Oreszko, and Barry, linemen, and 
Marhefka, Sellinger, and Cole, backs. 

* * * * 

To date this year St. Joe has won three 
gridiron tilts while losing two and tying 
another. The only outfit which both L. 
V. C. and the Hawks have contested is 
Drexel. The Dragons defeated the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen 12-0 while the Saints 
deadlocked them at 7-all. 

* * * * 

Last week St. Joe pulled a freak game 
out of the fire during the last several 
minutes of play against Delaware. The 
Mud Hens scored first, registering a 
touchdown and extra point in the first 
period, but the Hawks retaliated with 
13 counters and were out in front as the 
teams went into the final period. With 
six minutes to go, Delaware knotted the 
count when a substitute got loose on a 
47-yard scoring jaunt. Not to be out- 
done, the Hawks came right back, and 
a long pass from Val Hartman to Buck 
Fleming gave the Philadelphians six 
more points and a 19-13 win. 

* * * * 

Incidentally, the Lebanon Valley over- 
head defenses will be tested to the limit 
in the coming battle, for the Hawks 
have been scoring consistently this year 
on pass plays with Val Hartman doing 
most of the tossing.

Girls Hockey Team 

Loses To Harrisburg 

Crowd Sees Co-eds Drop First Game, 


The girls' hockey team lost to the 
Harrisburg Field Hockey club on Sat- 
urday morning November 2, by a margin 
of one goal. Although they scored their 
goals during the first half, the Harris- 
burg team displayed a distinct superior- 
ity in passing and defending throughout 
the second half. 

At the finish, the score was: Harris- 
burg 2, Lebanon Valley 1. 

The girls will have an opportunity to 
retaliate at a return match which is to 
be held, tentatively, on December 14 in 
Harrisburg. There is also a possibility 
of securing games with Susquehanna 
and Dickinson, and thus forming a tri- 
angular conference that is expected to 
create a spirit of friendly competition 
among the three organizations. Lebanon 
Valley will not, however, be represented 
by a varsity team in this triangle. 

Although there was a fairly large 
crowd present at the game on Saturday, 
the team is attempting to secure an even 
larger following by the time class match- 
es begin on November 7.

How's about scoring the sixth victory 
in the current St. Joseph's-Lebanon Val- 
ley grid feud, you Flying Dutchmen? 
There is little doubt in anyone's mind but 
that it can be done, but there can be no 
letdown, even though the last two battles 
—with Fordham and P. M. C. — have 
been plenty tough. 


Recent Plays And Movies To Be Dis- 
cussed By Group. 

The first meeting of the Readers' Club 
will be held on either the second or third 
Monday of November. The executive 
committee, with the help of Dr. Wallace, 
has been arranging a few very interest- 
ing programs. 

Maxine Earley has been appointed 
chairman of the first meeting. At this 
meeting the club is planning to consider 
a few of our recent good movies and 
plays that everyone on the campus has 
had opportunity to see. A few of the 
late summer books will also be discussed. 
The Readers' Club invites everyone in- 
terested in recent books and plays to 
come to this meeting, as well as all oth- 
er meetings, and to enter into its infor- 
mal discussion. 

Valley Foreward Passes 

Smother Penn Military 

(Continued From Page 1) 

stopped at the line of scrimmage. A lat- 
eral pass play lost about three yards, 
and a forward attempted on fourth 
down was incomplete. 

The other Valley scoring threat came 
late in the last period and ended unsuc- 
cessfully when Kniley's attempted field 
goal from placement was low and wide 
of the uprights. A 50-yard punt by 
Kress and Kniley's recovery of Mai Ste- 
vens' fumble had given the Flying 
Dutchmen possession of the ball on the 
Penn Military 21-yard line, and three 
running plays netted a loss of a yard 
previous to the Lebanon Valley guard's 
placement attempt, which was made from 
the 22-yard line at a slight angle. 

Lebanon Valley was in the possession 
of the ball deep in P.M.C. territory when 
the game ended. After Kniley's place- 
ment attempt, the Cadets took the ball 
on their own 20-yard line. Lebanon Val- 
ley's pass defense showed at its best at 
this point, four straight attempted for- 
wards being incomplete as the Cadets 
made their last futile effort to score. As 
a result of the quartet of failing for- 
wards, Lebanon Valley again took pos- 
session of the oval on the Cadet 20, but 
the game ended after but two more plays 
had been made. 

The Cadets had but one real scoring 
opportunity all afternoon, and on that 
occasion their offensive drive was utter- 
ly impotent. A 24-yard runback by Elko 
of a Kress punt carried the ball to the 
Lebanon Valley 25-yard line early in the 
second half. On the first play run from 
this point, Malinski fumbled, but recov- 
ered for a 5-yard loss. A forward pass 
from Elko to Pollock was good for but 
five yards. McCarthy was held for no 
gain on a running play, and an attempt- 
ed forward on fourth down was incom- 

During the whole game Penn Military 
College could register but four first 
downs, only one of which was chalked 
up in Lebanon Valley's territory, and 
thai one, harmlessly enough, on the L.V. 
C. 46-yard line. 

The Cadets displayed a determined 
defense against the Valley running 
plays, but were completely baffled by the 
smartly-executed forward pass plays of 
the Flying Dutchmen. The Military elev- 
en offensive drive showed considerable 
power at times, but an even half dozen 
fumbles and several bad passes from 
center marred the Cadet attack.

L. V. Stage 

Such a wealth of amusing incidents ac- 
companied the late presentation of the 
Shakespearean plays that we believe they 
will bear being dragged out and chuckled 
over. For example — Cassius — yes, the 
one with long-lipped dignity plus — spent 
the entire morning of the play singing 
"Here Comes Cookie." 

* * * * 

Frederick Thurston, another member 
of the cast, proved himself to be quite 
a hero — and that is meant less jestingly 
than it may sound. When the lights went 
out, where was Mr. Thurston? Oh no, 
you are wrong this time! He was down- 
stairs testing the fuse by thrusting his 
finger into the socket. His raw finger, 
mind you ! Great Jaspers, what courage ! 

* * * * 

After holding out nobly for one week, 
the office surrendered thirty dollars and 
fifty- four cents of the Shakespearean 
play's proceeds to Wig and Buckle — and 
no blood was shed on either side. 

A belated vote of thanks to the Wig 
and Buckle members who served in the 
stage crew : the noble dramas of "Wil- 
lie" Shakespeare kept them working 
from eleven-thirty in the morning until 
twelve-thirty at night. And to make 
things worse, by Great Jaspers, they 
hadn't time to eat anything more than a 
sandwich ! 

* * * * 

At one time during the morning that 
same stage crew, almost in its entirety, 
was swinging in mid-air. It happened — 
as does so much else in this cruel world 
— through pull. The crew was on one 
end of the rope and a heavy stage drap- 
ery at the other end, but the drapery had 
a drag with the floor and a pull with 
gravity, so the crew was left holding the 
bag — I mean the rope — somewhere be- 
tween here and heaven. 

The Shakespearean players succeeded 
in demonstrating what kind of effects 
will be obtained by spotlights that 
will be purchased with the proceeds of 
the awaited presentation of The Late 
Christopher Bean — providing, of course, 
that the proceeds are adequate. 

* * * * 

Who is this mysterious Mr. X. who 
has, during every play presentation of 
the last several years, removed the win- 
dows from the under-stage room ? When 
"Hans" had to wade through three feet 
— approximately — of leaves that had 
drifted in to replace them, he was heard 
to mutter, "Great Jaspers, I'll catch him 
yet !" 

* * * * 

Wig and Buckle is considering a union 
with a national honorary dramatic fra- 
ternity, Alpha Psi Omega. Well, at 
least it would give the female members 
a pin to flaunt in the home town. 

* * * * 

By the time you read this tickets for 
The Late Christopher Bean must be very 
nearly ready for sale. At least you 
should start saving your pennies — aim to 
save fifty cents for a reserved seat, then, 
if you fair short fifteen cents, you still 
will have enough for general admission. 

* * * * 

For the management of the tickets and 
advertising of the aforementioned play, 
a big bouquet to Mr. Richard Baus. 

It seems that there was a bit of a dis 
cussion during a rehearsal of the junior 
play between Charles Kinney and Coach 
Phillips concerning the pronounciation of 
the word "secreted." The audience 
seemed to favor Cha — but perhaps fur- 
ther discussion would be unfair in view 
of the fact that the columnist is biased 
by the knowledge that Mr. Webster is on 
"Hal's" side. 

* * * * 

Just one thing seems to be worrying 
the producers of The Admirable Crich- 
ton — how a desert island can be put un- 
der the chapel organ. But, Great Jaspers, 
what a problem it is ! 

* * * * 

Are you beginning to wonder where 
we picked up that coy expression, "Great 
Jaspers" ? Well, you have not heard the 
last of it, for, in The Late Christopher 
Bean, Dr. Haggett yelps "Great Jaspers" 
no less than six times — in substitution 
for more violent expression. We suggest 
a slightly more broad-minded view on 
the part of the powers that be.

The between-halves mock football 
game on Saturday was the nerts. We 
liked the novel huddle system used as 
well as the tip-off from center and the 
referee's official uniform and klaxon. 
Thanks, Frosh, for the show.

The amplifying system at the game 
was a mighty fine set-up for the band. 
How nearly the announcer could have 
called the plays and the players without 
the aid of the band well, we can only 
hazard a guess.

Musical Program 
Features Opening 
Of Delphian Hall 


Vocal Trio And Solos Featured As 
Miss Jagnesak Presides For Delta 

Delphian hall, Friday night, Nov. 8, 
took on the aspect of a night club. All 
the new girls were invited to reserve a 
table and join the night life. The host- 
esses were dressed in gay evening dresses 
with their hair done up in curls and pins. 
The guests appeared in fancy, informal 

The tables were arranged in a large 
circle and the floor show was given in 
the center of the arrangement. The room 
was dimly lighted with softly shaded 
floor lamps : pillows, rugs and lamps 
made the atmosphere cozy and "comfy". 
Glen Gray and Isham Jones played soft 
dance music while the guests danced or 
chatted at their individual tables. 

Mistress of ceremonies, Earnestine 
Jagnesak, announced the first number of 
the show, Velma Gingrich's interpreta- 
*» of "Speaking Confidentially". 
'Jackie" next introduced Mary Webb 
and her sax with the bit of syncopation 
"Lulu's Back in Town". The guests en- 
tertained themselves until "Jackie" pre- 
sented Cordelia Shaeffer and the Delta 
Lambda Sigma trio. Miss Shaeffer 
? ayed a composition of blue cords, 
Mood Indigo". Delta, Lambda and 


'gma gave "Love in Bloom". Later 
evening Charlotte Stabley sang "Love 

ngs of the Nile". She was called back

Saturday Marks 
Second Annual 
L. V. Dad's Day 


Many Features Including Albright 
Game To Aid In Entertaining Dads 
Over Week End. 

The campus will be the scene of many 
activities this week — with the excite- 
ment of Albright boys coming to town 
— the Society rush on Friday evening 
— the great game with Albright Satur- 
day. The boys of the campus are hav- 
ing distinguished guests here to wit- 
ness these great events, for they are 
having their second annual Dad's week- 
end celebration Friday and Saturday. 
Quite an elaborate program has been 
arranged for the week-end. Besides the 
campus activities, the boys will feature 
a Father and Son banquet Saturday 
evening at 6 :oo o'clock. Louis Straub 
will act as toastmaster. There will be 
singing, cheering, speaking, and more 
cheering! Eddy Loose, the chef, is co- 
operating with us, and has promised us 
the best dinner in the history of the 
school. Among the speakers will be a 
representative of the Dads, one will 
voice the sentiments of the sons, and a 
professor who will give the faculty slant 
on the situation. The stage is all set 
and we are prepared to show the Fa- 
thers a rousing good time!

A new mathematics club is being 
formed by Dr. G. E. Schweigert, in 
which mathematics of a higher theoreti- 
cal type will be discussed. It is open 
only to those students taking mathemat- 
ics 4(> or those who have completed this 
course. The club will meet weekly or bi- 
weekly as circumstances dictate. 

The subject matter will deal with 
mathematical science. It will consist of 
a definition and discussion of the science 
in relation to three or more fields, in- 
cluding projective geometry, the group 
theory, and the point set theory. Mem- 
bers of the club will learn why an angle 
cannot be trisected, the theory behind 
limits, and similar information. 

To Be Held Here 


Business Men To Speak On Christ In 
Professional Life. 

Mr. H. C. Gintzler, student secretary 
of the state Y. M. C. A., was on the 
campus Friday making arrangements 
for the Eastern Student-Faculty Con- 
ference, which is to be held at Lebanon 
Valley College on Dec. 6, 7, and 8. 

The theme for the conference, ac- 
cording to Mr. Gintzler, is to be "Christ 
in my professional life". The two prin- 
cipal speakers are to be Chas. P. Wuer- 
tenberger, general manager of the Con- 
roy-Prough Glass Co. of Pittsburgh, and 
Dr. Robert Black, field secretary of the 
Presbyterian Board of Education. Mr. 
Wuertenberger will speak on the sub- 
ject, "Seeing one's self in life's mirror,'" 
while Dr. Black will talk on "Invest- 

Dr. Hoover, of Gettysburg Seminary, 
will also be present to deliver an ad- 
dress. Dr. Wilt, pastor of the college 
church, has consented to take charge of 
one of the discussion groups. 

Y. M. Makes Anti-War Resolution 

Considering the critical state of inter- 
national affairs, and as a fitting com- 
memoration of the anniversary of the 
signing of the Armistice, the Y. M. C. 
A. Cabinet has drawn up and submitted 
for publication the following resolutions: 

Because of the disastrous moral and 
economic effects of war, the inhuman de- 
vices resorted to by warring nations, 
and the hopelessness of accomplishing 
good by means of wholesale bloodshed 
we are agreed: 

1. That war, with its program of de- 
ceit, hatred, and disregard for life, is 
entirely anti-Christian. 

2. That warfare as a means of set- 
tling international disputes could ade- 
quately be replaced by peaceful arbitra- 

8. That all war propaganda be met 
with intelligent and judicious considera- 
tion with reference to fact.

Heimenz Runs Back Opening Kickoff 92 Yards For Touchdown But Blue 
And White Triumphs, 12-6. 

S. W. Smith, Vet "Y" Man 
Talks Here On Youth 

Dorm Musicians Increase Vespers At- 

The regular "Y" vesper service held in 
the Men's Dormitory Sunday evening 
was well attended. The type of speakers 
provided for these services as well as the 
dormitory orchestra under the direction 
of Professor Carmean, are proving to be 
factors which tend to make these meet- 
ings popular among the men on the 

On Sunday evening S. W. Smith of 
Camp Hill, Pa., spoke to the local "Y" 
on the subject, "To-day's Youth — To- 
morrow's World". He presented as three 
outstanding ideals companionship, knowl- 
edge, and God. His thirty-six years of 
experience in Y. M. C. A. work have 
provided him adequate qualification to 
deal with the subject. His inspiring ad- 
dress was well received by those attend- 
ing. The music for the evening was 
again furnished by the "Y" orchestra. 

Lynch Gives Talk 
On Armistice Day 

Stonecipher Also Speaks In 
Chapel Ceremony 

Those who cut Chapel Monday morn- 
ing missed a very impressive service. 
Since the day commemorated the sign- 
ing of the Armistice, the chapel period 
was given over to a consideration of 
war — its causes, effects, and prevention. 
Dr. Stonecipher, who had charge of the 
service, delivered a short talk in which 
he emphasized the importance of using 
good judgment in considering war propa- 
ganda. He pointed out that during the 
late war the people of the United States 
were greatly influenced by malicious 
propaganda from overseas. 

Dr. Lynch, president of the college, 
then presented as complementary to Dr. 
Stonecipher's speech a short address in 
which he spoke of the failure of the last 
war with reference to its objectives — 
that of making the world safe for demo- 
cracy, and being a war to end war. — 
Neither of these ends, Dr. Lynch as-

After trailing by six points at the 
halfway mark, the Flying Dutchmen 
came back to land two touchdowns in a 
third period attack and snatch victory 
from the Hawks last Saturday at Phila- 
delphia before a St. Joseph's homecom- 
ing day throng of 4200. 

Harry Heimenz, flashy St. Joe half- 
back, ran back the opening kickoff 92 
yards for a touchdown, but after that 
the Valleyites rallied and held the upper 
hand throughout the remainder of the 
tilt, although the winning tally was de- 
cidedly of the spectacular variety rather 
than the result of straight, hard toot- 

Ed Kress, playing the quarterback 
position, dashed 55 yards after grabbing 
a St. Joe aerial that caromed off the 
arms of the intended receiver and scored 
the winning points after a speedy jaunt. 

This game-winning run came near the 
close of the third period, after the first 
Lebanon Valley touchdown had dead- 
locked the count at 6-all. This first score 
of the Flying Dutchmen had come 
largely as a result of another long run, 
one of 39 yards, by Bill Rhoades, re- 
serve back. Lebanon Valley gained pos- 
session of the oval on the Hawk two- 
yard stripe due to Rhoades' timely ad- 
vance, and on the first play from that 
point the New Jersey halfback covered 
the remaining distance to the end zone. 

Aside from the three thrilling runs — 
those of Heimenz, Kress, and Rhoades 
— the game was not particularly interest- 
ing, with the defensive strength of each 
team pretty well stopping the offensive 
drive of the other. 

Neither team was able to set in mo- 
tion a sustained march, and the battle 
was resolved largely into a punting duel, 
with neither team being able to take ad- 
vantage of the few breaks of the game 
that did present scoring opportunities to 
the contestants. 

Heimenz' runback of the opening kick- 
off was the longest run recorded in the 
history of Finnesey Field, the St. Joe 
home grounds. The Hawk halfback was 
delayed at the start of his run in picking 
up the bounding pigskin, but he finally 
set sail from the 8-yard marker and 
sped through the entire Valley outfit, 
with the aid of some excellent blocking 
on the part of his mates. 

The run provided the big thrill of the 
contest, but the later efforts of Rhoades 
and Kress put to naught the flashy scor- 
ng dash.

Dad's Week-End 

The college has set this week-end aside for the fellow who foots the bills and 
gets so little credit for it — your dad and mine, 

Another article in this issue enumerates the program of events that the Y. M. 
C. A. has arranged for the occasion, and we can assure you that things are going 
to be going on ! For one thing, there's the game with Albright which is always a 
sensation (we're telling you!); there's the Father and Son banquet, and a dance, 
and a lot of other things. . . . Yes sir, this will be one busy week-end ! 

Some of the Dads may feel a little embarrassed at receiving so much atten- 
tion, but everything is being done to make them feel at home and to assure them a 
good time. The idea is, of course, to show in part our appreciation to them. There 
can only be one hitch in the plans, and that is: have you invited your dad? If you 
haven't, grab a telephone and call him up — he'll appreciate it. 

Notes on Books 

A well-read person today is one who 
is in constant demand everywhere. Realiz- 
ing this fact, our college library is do- 
ing everything in its power to keep a 
continuous flow of new books in order 
to meet the changing interests and ideas 
of the present day. 

Here are just a few more that have 
been added to our already vast store- 
house of literary wealth : 

"Europa" by Robert Briffault: The 
scenes of Mr. Briffault's mighty pano- 
rama of a "mad world dancing the dance 
of death" are laid in England and Con- 
tinental Europe in the three decades 
which culminated in the World War. It 
is a novel of European society, high and 
low, sovereigns, aristocrats, captains of 
finance and speculation idlers, fops, wo- 
men flaunting lure and luxury and be- 
neath them in the shadows the slowly 
coalescing forces of the exploited. 

Against a vivid and detailed back- 
ground of pre- War life in London, St. 
Petersburg, Paris, Rome, and the Cote 
d' Azur, Mr. Briffault sets the story of 
young Julian Bern, well-born, keen- 
minded, a searcher for truth, and then, 
sickened by the spectacle of a heedless 
world rushing toward the abyss, an idler 
and a sensualist. Through his eyes and 
those of the beautiful Zena, Princess 
Hruzof, the reader views a spectacle of 
extravagance, dissipation, vice, and ras- 
cality unsurpassed in fiction. 

* * * * 

"The Theatre" by Sheldon Cheney: In 
this book a man's whole adventure with 

the theatre is woven into scenes of a sin- 
gle varied drama covering thirty cen- 
turies. The curtain rises on the makers 
of plays from Thespis, father of dia- 
logue, to Eugene O'Neill. 

In Rome, we watch the ancient vaude- 
ville and see how the Roman senate tears 
down the first stone theatre and Pompey 
erects a boot-leg stage camouflaged as a 
temple of Venus. We see gorgeous 
theatres of the Rennaissance when the 
jaded Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette 
pirouetted while revolution rumbled. 
Scenes are here showing the age-long 
fight between painters, playwrights, ac- 
tors, and producers, with personalities 
from Euripides to Inigo Jones, from 
Scaramuccia to Gordon Craig. 

Finally, we search for the meaning of 
the theatre today, as it stands among 
movie-tones and radio, and we speculate 
as to where it is to go tomorrow.

The business manager of the 1937 
Quittapahilla has announced that all 
arrangements have been made for the 
printing and binding of the year 
book. The contract has been award- 
ed again to the Telegraph I'ress of 
Harrisburg. William Earnest, edit- 
or-in-chief, spent several days of 
this week at the Harrisburg plant in 
collaboration with H. B. Dunmire, 
the Telegraph Press representative, 
drawing up an outline for the book. 

"Wine, Women, and Waltz" by David 
Ewen : Did you ever hear the "Blue 
Danube Waltz"? Did you know that the 
Strauss who wrote it was the son of a 
man who also wrote several hundred 
waltzes and who led an orchestra for 
years in the Viennese cafes? Did you 
know that both Strausses had innumer- 
able wives and mistresses waltzing about 
them all their lives, and that these two 
men made the hard-drinking, gay-living 
period of Vienna life which has since 
become the typification of that city? 

This book is a romantic biography of 
Johann Strauss the father, and Johann 
Strauss the son. It is far more than a 
biography, however, for it gives a pic- 
ture from the Emperor Francis Joseph 
down, of famous and infamous people 
of the city, of gaiety in which they were 
born and lived. It is the story of night 
life, dancing and loving in the greatest 
period of Vienna, where its two greatest 
creators of light music lived and died. 

Life Work Recruits 

Wilt's Guests Monday 

Beamesderfer Elected Representative 
To National Convention. 

The Life Work Recruits on Monday 
evening, Nov. 11, spent a delightful 
evening at the home of Dr. and Mrs. 
Wilt. About thirty students, Dr. and 
Airs. Lynch, and Dr. and Mrs. Richie 
were present. A brief business meeting 
preceded the entertainment, during which 
Harold Beamesderfer was elected rep~ 
resentative to the national convention at 
Indianapolis, Indiana. Deputations to 
Jefferson and Cleona were planned for 

A charming lack of informality lent 
a warm and friendly air to the program. 
Harold Beamesderfer kept the entire 
group hysterical as he told of the ad- 
ventures of "Shultz", the politician, and 
"Fritz", the storekeeper. If "Shultz" 
were elected alderman he promised to 
let the fellow with the least number of 
votes win. "It is easy enough to win with 
the most votes. Anyone can do it. But 
it is a whole lot harder to win with the 
least number." In Fritz's store, flies 
were sold with the fly paper, mice with 
the mousetraps, bugs with "bug pow- 
der", and soap with stockings. 

Rose Tschopp sang "The Bells of 
Saint Mary", accompanied by Robert 
Clippinger. Robert Clippinger also 
played several piano selections. Various 
novel games were enjoyed by all. De- 
licious refreshments were served by Mrs. 
Wilt and her daughters.

I. That our efforts toward the utter 
abolition of war he resolved into an edu- 
cation of the masses, so that through 
the force of public opinion the leaders

Notes From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tuesday, November 5 — Well, 1 finally 
have my poem finished. 1 never knew 
writing poetry was such hard work. 

I'm just a boy named Rudy 
With one great aim in life, 
To make a girl named Judy 
My sweetheart — and my wife. 


Bunny's angry at me. Somebody must 
have looked into my diary. 

Wednesday, November (i — Was 1 scared 
today. One of the boys in the dorm is 
quarantined for German Measles, Mumps, 
Typhoid Fever, and Scarlet Fever all at 
once. He must be seriously ill. I didn't 
breathe as 1 passed the room for fear of 
catching germs. 

Thursday, November 7 — Had a hole in 
my socks and thought Eleanor would 
mend it. Her name's on her room door. 
But horrors! Eleanor doesn't live there 
at all, but instead a boy called "Boo- 
Boo," and her name's on his door. Some 
of the fellows in chapel didn't like 
Claire's talk, hut I wonder if they'd dare 
to speak before a crowd. 

Friday, November 8 — I enjoyed the 
chorus today. There was a strange-look- 
ing girl in green in the front row who 
sang beautifully. I wonder who was 
firing shots in the back of the hall. 

Saturday, November 9 — Went on field 
trip with prof. I was certainly fright- 
ened the way John drove, and warned 
him on several occasions. The prof told 
me to stop hack-seat driving. 

Sunday, November 10 — There is a lot 
of resentment among the boys about the 
girls asking fellows off the campus to 
go to their Clio dance. I think that is 
a dirty trick. Gee, I wish I were going.* 

Monday, November 11 — There's an un- 
mannerly boy named Sausser who spoils 
my dinner every night by saying fright- 
ful things. He calls catsup blood and 
that isn't all. A pretty new girl has come 
to our table, and now I believe he'll 
turn over a new leaf. 

*Any woman wishing to offer Rudy a 
Clio date, please drop it in the La Vie 
collection box, Library. — Thank you. —

Lebanon Valley's gridders came out of

* * * * 
It appears at the present time as 

though the Flying Dutchmen will enter 
the all-important Albright struggle far 
bel<»w par physically, hut it is believed 
that the ancient traditional rivalry will 
bring l)l 't the best football of the year 
from the wearers of the Blue and White. 

* * * » 
Great teams have come and gone in 

the long series of years during which 
the Lions fid Flying Dutchmen have 
tangled on the gridiron, but previous 
records and former displays of strength 
(Bean little when the annual battle rolls 
around. Great Albright elevens have en- 
tered the Lebanon Valley game top- 
heavv favorites to win, yet have found 
themselves on the short end of the score 
after sixty minutes of hard football. On 
the other hand, many a favored V alley- 
ite aggregation has bent the knee to a 
not-so-highly regarded Lion outfit. 

* * * * 
Thus it is that an evaluation of the 

opposing teams before the annual fray is 
of little real worth. 

» * * * 

However, for what little worth there 
may be in it, let us attempt to size up 
the Red and White and the Blue and 
White elevens. 

* * * * 

Albright sports victories over George- 
town, Lafayette, Ursinus and Moravian, 
and has been defeated but once, by West 
Chester Teachers. Although Georgetown 
no longer is renowned for its football 
teams and is definitely on the decline as 
a grid power, still the team which the 
Lions defeated by a 7-0 score forced a 
stronger-than-usual N.Y.U. team to the 
limit before yielding by a 7-6 count. La- 
fayette is having a poor year, yet a team 
that can roll up 38 points against them, 
as the Lions did, is no weak outfit. The 
Ursinus eleven is not particularly strong 
season, although the 59-0 defeat suf- 
fered at the hands of F. & M., is hardly 
'nthcative of the true strength of the 
Rears. Albright downed the Collegevil!<* 
fpiamen by a 23-0 score. Two weeks ago 
lhe Hed and White came close to defeat 
at the hands of Moravian, but the Lions 
Prevented an upset by rallying to con- 
fer their lesser opponents. Last week 
es t Chester won over the Lions, but 
' "largin of victory was a mere point- 
s-touchdown, and the Chester colle- 
gians were outplayed all the way by the

W. A. A. Committee 
Plan Statutes 

Constitution To Be Drawn 
Up By November li). 

The committee to form a constitution 
for the W. A. A. met at South Hall, 
Thursday, Nov. 7, at 8:00 P. M. The 
committee is composed of two members 
from each class: Senior— Louise Bish- 
op, Hazel March; Junior— Eleanor 
Lynch, Anna Orth ; Sophomore— Martha 
Baney, Dorothy Kreamer ; Freshman — 
Mildred Gangwer, Anna Morrison. 

It is proposed to form an organization 
which will function to create a higher 
ideal in sports, raise the standard of 
girls' sports on the campus, offer variety 
so that all may participate, and to offer 
relaxation and recreation that will lead 
to a more equally balanced college life. 

Constitutions of similar organizations 
ot various colleges are being considered 
so that by the time of the next meeting, 
Nov. 19, a definite constitution for our 
college will be drawn up.

Last year a long forward pass from 
Rust to Smith resulted in a touchdown 
and a 6-3 Valley victory. In the all- 
time series which dates back to 1902, 
Lebanon Valley holds the edge in vic- 
tories with nine to five for the Lions, 
and two games deadlocked. In the con- 
tinuous series, which was started in 1924, 
L.V.C. leads the Lions, five victories to 
four, with two ties.

How's about that tenth victory in the

won this year as any other, so go to it, 

1 jast-Half Touchdowns 

Conquer St. Joseph 

{Continued From Page 1) 

St. Joseph's had pretty much the bet- 
ter of the going in the first half, but 
after the intermission the Flying Dutch- 
men outplayed them in every department 
of the game to annex a well-deserved 
triumph. Lebanon Valley outscored the 
Hawks in first downs by a count of 9 
to 6. 

The loss left the St. Joe outfit still in 
search of its first victory over an L. V. 
C. opponent on the gridiron, the Flying 
Dutchmen sporting a perfect record in 

six games played against the Philadel- 
phia gridmen.

L. V. Stage 

We hear that Harold Phillips, has been 
consulted about lighting effects for this 
Goya, Spanish dancing gal, who is to 
be in Lebanon next Monday. It is even 
rumored that Hal is to be back stage 
during- the performance. . . . We don't 
think it's quite fair. We could have tak- 
en up stage lighting too it' we had known 
it was going to be so darn interesting. 

* * * * 

We recall that Louise Stoner and Les- 
ter Krone, who play opposite each other 
and furnish chief love interest in "Chris- 
topher Bean," were also paired off in 
"Children of the Moon." Were there not 
so much evidence to the contrary, we 
would say it looks like a put-up job. 

* * * * 

One of the most killing touches in 
'Christopher Bean" is the way Bob 
Spohn sits back and thinks when he gets 
into a jam. We hadn't known thinking 
could be SO dramatic. But then perhaps 
we haven't had much experience. 

* * * * 

We are still worrying about Bob 
Spohn and his "Great Jaspers" or "by 
Jeebers" or whatever it is. We realize 
the necessity of more or less violent eja- 
culations on the stage, where the drama- 
tist, unlike the novelist, cannot take 
time off to tell more directly what is go- 
ing on in the minds of his characters. 
We feel keenly the childishness of most 
substitutes for cuss words; on the other 
hand, we realize that it would hardly do 
on the L. V. stage to use all the refer- 
ences to Diety and the processes of dam- 
nation that are commonly employed on 
the commercial stage. We herewith ap- 
pend a list of terms which, though innoc- 
uous enough, we hope, may yet come un- 
der the heading of plausible profanity. 
We invite additional contributions, par- 
ticularly from those who object to the 
orthodox terms. 

Jumping Jupiter. 

By the great horn spoon. 

Holy cats. 

Ye gods and little fishes. 

Shiver my timbers. 

Glory be to Goshen. 

Well, knibble my knuckles. 

Most of these, we admit, are extreme- 
ly hackneyed. Perhaps, after all, it 
would be just as well to say, "aw fiddle- 
sticks," and let it go at that.

At the meeting of the Life Work 
Recruits on Thursday in North Hall 
parlor, Calvin Reber preached an in- 
spiring sermon on "Temples". He 
compared the human body with the 
most beautiful temples, synagogues, 
and cathedrals ever built. Rose 
Tschopp sang "The Perfect Day", 
accompanied by Emma Mary Smyser.

Boh Tilford waxed so enthusiastic 
about The Late Christopher Beau that 
he proposed to paint the bank with an 
advertisement. After much argument, 
however, he was convinced that a poster 
would serve the purpose. Bob's habit of 
throwing himself, as well as his paints 
and his trick box into everything from 
tennis nets to cheer-leading, should prob- 
ably be commended.

Some time ago while leafing through 
the pages of Croll's Landmarks in the 
Lebanon Valley I came upon the follow- 
ing remarks : 

" that famous imposter — Dr. 

John Dady — that sacerdotal wolf-in- 
sheep's-clothing, who in the latter por- 
tion of the last century, here for a while 
successfully practised a smart game of 
gulling the simple, all too credulous 
German folk and extorting their hard- 
earned cash from them. This glib- 
tongued Hessian — a remnant of those 
contemptible English Revolutionary hire- 
lings — however, was not sharp enough to 
hide, for a long period, his black and 
greedy heart under his ministerio-medical 
coat from the Argus-eyed officer of the 
!aw, who in due time discovered his de- 
ception, tore the mask from his face, 
and sent him to the penitentiary, where 
he deservedly pined out his life." 

My interest aroused and hot on the 
scent, I discovered an account of this 
foul charlatan in another history by one 
Daniel Rupp, published 1844, which will 
serve to show the gross superstition un- 
der which our forefathers labored. It 
follows, verbatim. 

"Rainsford Rogers and John Hall came 
to the house of Clayton Chamberlain, a 
neighbor of Dady, in July, 1797. 

On the following morning, Dady went 
to Chamberlain's and had a private con- 
versation between Williams and Hall, be- 
fore breakfast. After Dady had left 
them, Williams asked Chamberlain whe- 
ther the place was not haunted. Being 
answered in the negative, he said that it 
was haunted — that he had been born with 
a veil over his face — could see spirits, 
and had been conducted thither, sixty 
miles, by a spirit. Hall assented to the 
truth of this. In the evening of the same 
day, they had another interview with 
Dady. Williams then told Chamberlain, 
that if he would permit him to tarry 
over night, he would show him a spirit. 
This being agreed to, they went into a 
field in the evening, and Williams drew 
a circle on the ground, around which he 
directed Hall and Chamberlain to walk 

Conservatory Chorus 

Sings At Lancaster 

Presents Program At M. E. Church 
Sunday Evening. 

forty members of the Conservatory 
Chorus motored to Lancaster on Sunday 
evening of Nov. 10 and presented a 
group of four numbers to a very ap- 
preciative audience at the first Methodist 
Episcopal Church. The numbers were: 
"Lo, a voice to heaven sounding" by 
Bortniansky; "Nightfall in Skye" by 
Roberton ; "On Great Lone Hills" by 
Sibelius and "Onward Christian Sol- 
diers" by Sullivan. The Club had a very 
delightful trip and sincerely appreciated 
the hospitality given them while they 
were at Lancaster. 

in silence. A terrible screech was soon 
heard proceeding from a black ghost 
(!!!) in the woods, at a little distance 
from the parties, in a direction opposite 
to the place where Williams stood. In 
a few minutes a white ghost appeared, 
which Williams addressed in a language 
which those who heard him could not 
understand— the ghost replied in the 
same language! After his ghostship had 
gone away, Williams said that the spirit 
knew of a treasure which it was per- 
mitted to discover to eleven men — they 
must be honest, religious and sensible, 
and neither horse jockeys nor Irishmen. 

Chamberlain, convinced of the exist- 
ence of a ghost and a treasure, was easily 
induced to form a company which was 
soon effected. 

Each candidate was initiated by the 
receipt of a small sealed paper, con- 
taining a little yellow sand, which was 
called "the power." This "power" the 
candidate was to bury under the earth 
to the depth of one inch, for three days 
and three nights — performing several ab- 
surd ceremonies, too obscene to be de- 
scribed here. 

A circle, two inches in diameter, was 
formed in the field, in the centre of 
which there was a hole six inches wide 
and as many deep. A captain, a lieuten- 
ant and three committee men were elect- 
ed. Hall had the honor of the captaincy. 
The exercise was to pace around the 
circle, etc. This, it was said, propi- 
tiated and strengthened the white ghost, 
who was opposed by an unfriendly black 
ghost who rejoiced in the appelation of 
Pompey. In the course of their nocturnal 
exercises they often saw the white ghost 
— they saw Mr. Pompey too, but he ap- 
peared to have "his back up," bellowed 
loudly, and threw stones at them. 

On the night of the 18th of August, 
1797, Williams undertook to get in- 
unctions from the white ghost. It was 
lone in the following manner : He took 
a sheet of clean, white paper, and folded 
it in the form of a letter, when each 
member breathed into it three times ; 
this being repeated several times, and the 
paper laid over the whole in the center 
of the circle, the instructions of the 
ghost were obtained. The following is 
a short extract from the epistle written 
by the ghost: 

'God <>n, and do right, and prosper, 
and the treasure shall be yours. I am 
permitted to write this in the same hand 
I wrote in the flesh for your direction. 
Take care of your powers in the name 
and fear of God our protector — if not, 
J leave the work. There is a great treas- 
ure, 4000 pounds a-piece for you. Don't 
trust the black one. Obey orders, — 
Break the enchantment which you will 
not do until you get an ounce of mineral 
dulcimer elixir ; some German doctor 
has it. It is near and dear, and scarce. 
Let the committee get it — but don't let 
ihe Doctor know what you are about — 
he is wicked.' 

The above is but a small part of this 
precious communication. In consequence 
of these ghostly directions, a young man 
named Abraham Kephart waited, by or- 
der of the committee, on Dr. Dady. The 
Dr. preserved his clix'nncr in a bottle 
sealed with a large red seal, and buried 
in a heap of oats, and demanded fifteen 
dollars for an ounce of it. Young Kep- 
hart could not afford to give so much, 
but gave him thirty-six dollars and three 
bushels of oats for three ounces of it. 
Another member gave 12 dollars for 
eleven ounces of the stuff. 

The company was soon increased to 30 
persons, many of whom were wealthy. 
All these and many other men were, in 
the words of the indictment, cheated and 
defrauded by means of certain false 
tokens and pretences, to wit : by means 
of pretended spirits, certain brown pow- 
der, and certain compositions called min- 
eral dulcimer elixir, and Deterick's min- 
eral elixir." 

After several successful extortions 
Dady was convicted in 1800, fined one 
hundred and sixty dollars, and sent to 
the penitentiary for two years. Thus 
ends the damnable history and the de- 
served reward of that wolf-in-sheep's- 
elothing — Dr. Dady.

Talent Of All Societies Enacts Clever 
Stage Entertainment Prior To 
Dance In College Gymnasium. 

Displaying their most comically-talent- 
ed members on Friday evening, the four 
•literary" societies of the campus ended 
their rush for the year and settled back 
t0 wait for Monday's ■ selection returns. 

General opinion among freshmen fol- 
lowing the joint program in Engle Hall 
wa s that each society had staged a good 
show. However, according to clapping 
response, "Jerry" Harkins, kiddy-car 
riding "Okey Dokey" singer of Clio; 
Kalo's "sextuplets", introduced by Cas- 
per Q. Milquetoast Smith, composed of 
a violin trio, "Jack" Schuler, Robert 
Sausser and Russell Hatz, accompanied 
by Albert Anderson, and James Miller 
and George Yokum, who played original 
arrangements of popular pieces on two 
pianos, (much dusting of keys and smok- 
ing of pipes accompanying the perform- 
ance) ; Philo's mule of which "Ken" 
Eastland was the neck and John Trego 
the rest; and June Gingrich, leader of 
the Delphian German Band; were out- 
standing on the program.

Society Rush Results 

Although officers of the literary so- 
cieties admit that the full quota of new 
members has not yet been definitely 
pledged, and that the aspect of the situa- 
tion may be totally reversed by the time 
the next issue of the La Vie goes to 
press, they gave the following statistics 
regarding those Freshmen and new 
students who have enrolled to date in 
their organizations : Philo, 31 ; Kalo, 
20; and among the girls, Clio, 30; Del- 
phian, 11. 

The reason for the preponderance of 
Philos is a subject of controversy among 
those to whom such matters are of im- 
portance. However, Louise Shearer, 
president of the Clionian Society, says 
that for the past four years, her or- 
ganization has enrolled a large majority 
of the girls. She thinks this tradition 
may have a strong effect on the deci- 
sions of quite a number of girls. 

At the present writing, there are few 
men students living in the dormitory who 
have not pledged themsevles to the 
Philos. On the other hand, a large num- 
ber of day students have enlisted with 
the Delta Lambda Sigma boys, and since 
propaganda and counter-propanganda 
still thicken the air, there are hourly 
new converts to both sides. It will not be 
possible to give a definite analysis of 
the situation until some of the smoke 
nas cleared away.

The International Relations Club met 
at the home of Dr. Stevenson on Tues- 
day, November 12. Neutrality was the 
theme of the evening's program. 

After a brief business meeting, Calvin 
Spitler reported on the highlights of 
current events. The discussion of neu- 
trality was opened by an informal pre- 
sentation of the subject by Marian Lei- 
fey. An open forum discussion and re- 
freshments took up the remainder of the 
time. The Club talked of war, peace and 
neutrality; and finally at the hour of ad- 
journment, the subject of conversation 
was the next presidential election.

Many Dads Attend 
Honorary Banquet 


Miss Duffy, Rev. Barnhart, Metoxen 
Carmean, Straub, Shaffer Take Part 
In Entertaining. 

The second annual Dads' Week-end 
sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. was well 
attended, as the records show that thirty- 
two dads were present at some time or 
other during this period. The climax of 
the occasion was reached on Saturday 
night when the Father and Son banquet 
was held in the large dining room at 
North Hall. 

After Dr. Lynch had asked grace, the 
group proceeded to enjoy a delicious 
dinner. The toastmaster, Louis Straub 
then assumed charge of the festivities 
and presented the various speakers and 
musicians in turn. 

The first speaker, representing the 
L. V. C. faculty, was Chief Metoxen. He 
pointed out, among other things, that the 
defeat handed our football team by Al- 
bright a few hours before was • not a 
setback in morale, but that the team went 
down fighting. 

In the musical number which followed, 
Miss Beulah Duffy, instructor of piano 
at the Conservatory of Music, presented 
a syncopated medley which she desig- 
nated as "Fantastic Moods". As an en- 
core Miss Duffy played a short melody 
of a more sentimental mood. 

Rev. I. J. Barnhart, pastor of the 
First United Brethren Church at Her- 
shey very ably represented the fathers 
in a well-spoken talk. He emphasized 
above all the preminence a father should 
have in, the mind of his son. 

Donald Wtorley, a music student who 
transferred to Lebanon Valley College 
from Juniata this fall, favored the as- 
semblage with two vocal selections — "The 
Hunters' Loud Halloo" by O'Hara, and 
"Pegeen", by Vanderpool.

Doctor Struble 
Writes Article 

Appears First In October 
Issue of "American Speech.'' 

In the October issue of American 
Speech Dr. George G. Struble of the 
English department contributes a most 
interesting article on The English of the 
Pennsylvania Germans. A copy is to be 
found in the library. 

Dr. Struble explains that "Pennsylva- 
nia pidgin" may be attributed both to the 
influence of the Deutsch, the native 
German dialect, and to the survival of 
English of the colonial period. In his 
paper he cites examples taken from 
student themes and from observations 
made during his four year's residence

Under the "Deutsch" influence he 
marks these oddities of pronunciation: 
the confusion of vs and w's as in the

inability to pronounce the letter J (an 
early manual advises for practice the

failure to pronounce g as in finger, and 
more commonly Engle ; and finally, the 
tendency to pronounce a as short o as

A powerful Albright Lion, tamed but 
once this year, was unleashed against 
Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen last 
Saturday on the local college gridiron 
and displayed a fighting fury that sent 
down the noble Blue and White defend- 
ers to a 10-0 defeat. 

The largest share of the glory for the 
brilliant victory of the Readingites be- 
longed to sophomore Dick Riffle, the 
triple-threat backfield ace, who turned in 
a stellar performance as a ball-carrier 
as the spearhead of the Red and White 
offensive attack. Riffle registered the 
only touchdown of the game early in the 
fir^t period and never failed to gain 
when was given the opportunity to smash 
the Valley line or sprint around the ends. 
The 190-pound Corning, N. Y., halfback 
frequently carried one or more L. V. C. 
tacklers with him for several yards after 
being apparently hemmed in by Blue 
:md White jerseyed gridmen. 

In the backfield, Riffle was ably as . ; 
ed by Claude Felty, a senior from Leb- 
anon, and Woodrow Powell and Tony 
Troisi, a pair of sophomores. Felty dis- 
played plenty of ability as a line-cracker 
and defensive ace, Powell reeled off sev- 
eral nice gains, and Troisi made several 
shifty side-stepping returns of L. V. C. 

Albright's ten counters were scored on 
a first-period touchdown and extra point 
and a field goal registered on the first 
play of the last quarter. Another field 
goal attempt, made in the opening chap- 
ter, failed by the narrowest of margins, 
the pigskin striking one of the uprights 
and bounding back into the playing field. 

Ross of Albright kicked off to start 
the contest, with Tindall receiving and 
returning from his own 10 to the 33. On 
three tries at the line, Kress made 
eleven yards and a first down, but 
two more line thrusts were stopped and 
Lebanon Valley punted on third down. 
Powell snared Kress' kick on his own .13 
and was not downed until he had 
reached the Lebanon Valley 29-yard line. 
The run was made possible when the 
Valley ends and tackles overran Kress' 
boot, which was made against the wind 
and carried but fourteen yards past the 
line of scrimmage. To add to the woe* 
of the wearers of the Blue and White, a 
fifteen-yard penalty was called against 
the Flying Dutchmen and the Lio '.is 
gained possession of the ball deep in 
Valley territory.

War or Peace? 

Much is being said lately about that eternal problem, peace. Resolutions are 
being passed by existing organizations, propaganda is being published in all types 
of journalistic endeavor. More and more organized movements are being instituted 
against war. Thousands of young people of our age have signed and are still sign- 
ing pledges to the effect that they will not bear arms or join any of the fighting 
forces of our country to aid it in waging an aggressive war. If the United States 
should ever declare war what would become of all this anti-war propaganda, these 
peace resolutions, these signed pledges? They would be reduced to the status of 
the often-mentioned "scraps of paper." 

For who can decide when a country enters a war of aggression? Did any 
country ever enter a war as the aggressor? In the last great war, weren't the 
Allies on the "right side"? Yet didn't the Kaiser say, "Ich und Gott"? All coun- 
tries concerned in warfare are fighting for the rightful cause. How can this be 
accounted for? Seldom does public opinion run so high as during war time. Never 
is it so easily swayed by propaganda. What can be done about this? That question 
is to be decided by the thousands who will be nothing more than cannon fodder in 
the next war. 

It will take more than mere resolutions or pledges to put a stop to war. It 
means that definite action must be taken, action that will make it impossible for 
countries to wage war, thereby advancing the ambition of a maniac, or saving the 
riches of a bunch of crooks at the head of economic systems. 

The fool who attacks peace movements, justifying war as a method of scienti- 
fic advancement, admits his imbecility. The only advances made in science during 
war are those improvements on methods to kill and destroy. Of course, it is the 
ultimate desire of every sane person to be killed, wounded, or horribly mangled. 
In that purpose only does war achieve its aim. What are we going to do about it?

a similar article on the English of the 
Filipinos, published under the title, 
'Bamboo English,' in the American 
Speech for April, 1929. Though of Penn-

lYo/es From A College Freshman s Diary 


Tuesday, November 12 — I wrote a let- 
ter home tonight asking Papa, Mamma, 
and Aunt Rachel to come to school for 
Dad's day. Maybe Aunt Rachel will 
give me another dime. 

Wednesday, December 13 — One of the 
boys who belongs to Kalo tried to per- 
suade me to join Philo and right after 
that a Philo boy told me to be sure to 
join Kalo. I think that was very big- 
hearted in them. 

Thursday, November 14 — I ate at the 
restaurant today with Bob, and he said 
he was having trouble with organic 
chemistry. He asked me if I had ever 
made some ethyl compound, but I said I 
hadn't. Then he asked Kenneth, the 
waiter, but he didn't know how to do it 

Friday, November 15 — There was an 
excellent program in chapel tonight. Sev- 
eral boys with malignant growths were 
there. I never saw them before. There 
was a horse, too, but the back part was 
in the front. That was comical. There 
was a dance later. Two of my profs 
were there and exchanged dances. I got 
a letter that the family is coming and 
they're bringing Aunt Hettie and Uncle 
Abner and Grandma, too. 

Saturday, November 16 — Gee, what a 
day! The seven of us went to the game. 
Uncle Abner met a fellow in front of 
the gate who said he'd sell him tickets 
for 35c instead of $1. I believe he was 
what they call a scalper. Uncle Abner 
gave him the money and took the tickets 
and the fellow ran away. When we 
looked at the tickets they were for a 
play next week and not for the game at 
all. Aunt Hettie almost fainted. Now 
they're all coming to see the play next 
Thursday. I didn't get any dimes, either. 
I still haven't received a Clio bid and I 
feel awfully bad about it. 

Sunday, November 17 — Studied all 
day. Saw Judy tonight and asked her to 
take a walk next Tuesday. She said yes. 
I'll have to make up for lost time. 

Monday, November 18 — They passed 
out slips in chapel to select societies. I 
don't want to slight any of the boys, so 
I signed to join both.

Saturday, November 16— Played hock-

mixing it up on sidelines to decide 
whether Peg or Wanda was the better 
player. I could show 'em both some 
tricks. Dad came at noon. Gee, he's a 
swell pal. Some scalper sold Dad a tick- 
et for game for 35c, and it turned out 
to be a play ticket. Dad was tickled 
pink. Said that kid'll make a success. 
Said hell come down for play Thursday

14 to 7 in first downs and about 250

Albright had a slight edge in the 
punting department, with neither outfit

Considering everything, the Blue and 
White gridmen were pretty completely 
outplayed, but they were not outfought. 
From whistle to whistle the Lions knew 
that they were in a football game, and 
the Lions faced as determined an eleven 
as any they have faced all year. Even 
in defeat, the Valleyites acquitted them- 
selves commendably and there was no

And thus we come down to the final 
game of the grid season, with the Flying

major gridiron powers of the country.

Lebanon Valley's opponents, the Uni-

Powerful Lions Subdue 

Serappy Valley Eleven 

{Continued From Page i) 

The teams lined up on the 14-yard line 
of L. V. C. and three plays sufficed to 
carry the leather into touchdownland. 
A line play gained two of the necessary 
yards, and two lateral pass plays covered 
the remaining distance, Riffle going over 
the final stripe after taking a toss from 
Troisi. Ross' placement kick for the ex- 
tra point sailed squarely between the 
uprights to put Albright in front by 
seven counters. 

Lebanon Valley chose to receive the 
ensuing kickoff and was forced once 
again to punt, with Albright taking the 
ball on its own 47-yard line. Riffle and 
Felty smashed the Valley line for a first 
down on three plays, and a forward pass 
from Felty to Powell placed the ball on 
the Blue and White 20. A 15-yard 
penalty set the Lions back to the 35 and 
three plays netted but seven yards. On 
fourth down, Captain Ross stepped back 
to the 35-yard marker for a placement 
field goal attempt, the ball striking the 
upright and falling away harmlessly. 

The Flying Dutchmen were again 
forced to punt, and an Albright attack 
again carried deep into Lebanon Valley 
territory, the Blue and White finally 
holding for downs within its own ten- 
yard marker to put an end to the alien 
advance. L. V. C. came back with an 
attack of its own which registered two 

straight first downs, but Felty intercept- 
ed a pass to bring the drive to an abrupt 

Neither team was able to get a sus- 
tained drive under way for the rest of 
the half, and the lions trotted off the 
field at intermission with their 7-0 lead 

Lebanon Valley made its most deter- 
mined bid for a score early in the third 
period. Tindall pulled in an Albright 
punt on his own 37-yard line and picked 
his way to the enemy 45 before he was 
finally downed. A running play failed to 
gain and a forward pass was incomplete, 
but Johnny Tindall found a hole in the 
line on the next play and squirmed 
through for twelve yards and a first 
down on the Red and White 33. An 
aerial heave thrown by Kress found its 
mark, and the receiver, Tindall, weaved 
his way to the Albright 14-yard line be- 
fore he was brought down. Unfortunate- 
ly the flashy quarterback fumbled the 
oval when he was tackled and an alert 
Lion defender redovered to halt the 
Valley drive. 

At the close of the third period, Al- 
bright set sail from its own 35-yard line 
with a fifty-yard sustained drive that 
carried them once again deep into Leb- 
anon Valley territory, but the Valleyites 
braced to smear the attack on three 
straight plays to set the Lions back to 
the 24-yard line. 

On fourth down another field goal 
was attempted, with a substitute back. 
John Muller, booting the ball cleanly 
over the bar from the 36-yard line to 
end the scoring for the day. 

Lebanon Valley took to the air in the 
closing minutes in a valiant attempt to 
score, but the Lion defense was success- 
ful in stopping the Blue and White at- 
tack, thus sending the Flying Dutchmen 
down to defeat for the sixth time in the 
long series of Albright-L. V. C. football 
tilts. The Valleyites still hold the upper 
hand in the series, with nine wins to 
their credit.

Parade at Game 


Snappy Uniforms And Spirited Drum 
Majors Give Band Style At Game. 

Last Saturday, by playing and march- 
ing at the Albright-Lebanon Valley 
game, the girls' band inaugurated what 
is hoped will become a permanent cus- 
tom of the school. The forty piece or- 
ganization made a favorable impression 
on both students and visitors, and 
aroused enthusiastic comment in their 
initial performance of this type. The 
co-eds, nattily attired in their new blue 
and white uniforms (they only were re- 
ceived on Friday) were well directed in 
their snappy marching by the two fresh- 
man drum majors, Anita Patschke and 
Marianne Treo. Professor E. P. Rut- 
ledge is the faculty director. 

Heretofore the girls have been hin- 
dered by a lack of uniforms. The ob- 
stacle was finally overcome in time 
for the last home game when the per- 
sor.ell of the band agreed to secure their 
own skirts if the school would provide 
the sweaters. Incidently the instruments 
are owned partly by the members and 
partly by the school. Thus it is an al- 
most entirely self-supporting group, al- 
though it is aided somewhat by con- 
tributions. In past years the girls have 
obtained some finances by selling re- 
freshments at games and dances. 

The band was projected on its career 
three years ago through the efforts of 
Professor Rutledge and a nucleus of 
students interested in the undertaking. 
At first it consisted of about twenty 
members, and today it has grown to al- 
most twice its original size. The musi- 
cians practice every Tuesday and Thurs- 
day in their attempt to become a really 
fine band. Almost all the girls in the 
conservatory are members, although 
quite a few students in the college are 

During the past they have presented 
several concerts in chapel, programs for 
civic clubs of nearby towns, and they 
have entertained for Mothers' Week- 
end. Efforts are being made in coming 
years to send both the girls' and men's 
bands to all games. This will require 
the support of students and faculty. At 
least, since the uniforms have been se- 
cured, we shall see them at all home 
games next year. 

Freshman Co-ed 

Team Bows 4-2 


V. Gingrich, Lynch, Risser Score Be- 
fore Enthusiastic Crowd Saturday. 

Saturday morning, Nov. 16, a team 
composed of upper-classmen and sopho- 
mores beat the freshman 4-0 in a hockey 
game. Three of the goals were scored 
in the first half, when most of the play- 
ing took place in freshman territory. 

Both teams showed a decided tend- 
ency to bunch and play out of position. 
The second half was distinctly improved, 
for both teams played cleaner, faster 
hockey. Only one goal was scored. A 
general spirit of enthusiasm and friendly 
competition marked the first inter-class 
game as a success. The spectators en- 
joyed the game as much as the players. 

The line-ups for the game were:

Adams Brings Message 
To Wei's. Prayer Meeting 

Last Wednesday the weekly student 
devotional hour met, as usual, in Philo 
Hall. Louis Straub presided at the serv- 
ice and introduced Miss Fox who led in 
devotions. Miss Claire Adams presented 
a challenging message in story form in 
which she pictured the relation of 
Christ to our campus life, and to our 
own individual lives. The service was 
concluded with prayer and quiet medita- 
tion as Ruth Goyne played a fitting post- 

These devotional meetings are made 
possible through the joint efforts of the 
two Y cabinets. Special programs are 
planned each week.

Carola Goya Dances in Lebanon 

L. V. C. members of the Community 
Concert Association attended a recital 
in the Lebanon high school auditorium 
Monday by Carola Goya, Spanish dancer. 
Young, and beautiful, complete mistress 
of the technical side of her art, gor- 
geously costumed and radiating the joy 
and passion of Spain, she flashed across 
the stage in an unforgettable pageant 
of color, rhythm and grace. 

While Senorita Goya presents the tra- 
ditional dances of the provinces and cit- 
ies of Spain, it is as a creative artist. 
With typical Spanish steps and rhythms 
as a background, she has created dance 
dramas by using her remarkable gift of 
pantomime. Her dances range from au- 
dacious comedy to flaming emotion. For 
this purpose the music of the great con- 
temporary Spanish composer has been 
used. The works of Granados, De Falla, 
Turina, and Lecuona are some of the 
most prominent. They have both embel- 
lished and sublimated the characteristic 
melodies and rhythms of Old Spain in 
the modern manner. 

The program opened with "Sevilla," 
by Albeniz. It is the "Dance of Presen- 
tation," and is the traditional opening 
dance in Spain. In brilliant red La 
Goya welcomed her audience, accom- 
panying her steps with constant music. 
The most outstanding number was De 
Falla's "Dance of Terror" and "Ritual 
Fire Dance." The lover of a gypsy girl 
has died but his spirit will not leave her. 
As the hour strikes twelve his ghost 
appears before her. Terrified, she runs, 

her long silky hair tangled by the wind; 
her gown ripped. Everywhere she turns 
he is there. She cannot escape him. Des- 
perate, exhausted, she falls. As she re- 
gains strength she thinks of the lire 
magic. Slowly, hopefully she builds a 
fire. As it leaps and grows she dances 
around it, in her last attempt to release 
her lover's spirit. 

In sharp contrast to the tcrribleness 
of this drama is the sheer beauty of 
"Ensueno," by Albeniz. This is an at- 
mospheric interpretation of a tango. It 
is redolent with romance and intangible 
loveliness of moonlit southern Spain. In 
white chiffon, a great sparkling fan be- 
fore her face, she dreamingly dances over 
a dark blue lighted stage. 

Her complete mastery of the art of 
using castanets is never more outstand- 
ing than when she imitates the sound 
of horses' hoofs by fastening these cas- 
tanets onto her heels. 

The great Otero of Seville, supreme 
master of the Spanish dance in Spain, 
said of her: "Carola Goya gives the 
true essence of the Spanish dance. All 
the traditional dances are absolutely au- 
thentic in form and feeling. She is tak- 
ing to other countries the Spanish dance 
as it absolutely is." 

The high musical quality of the La 
Goya program was furnished by the so- 
los played by Beatrice Burford, one •oi 
the outstanding harp virtuosi of the day, 
and the sensitive and artistic piano ac- 
companiment and interludes furnished 
by Norman Secon. 


A new and unique style of radio en- 
tertainment will, if found acceptable, be 
presented by station WOR. Known as 
the "Campus on the Air," it will be a 
program prepared, directed and present- 
ed entirely by college and university stu- 
dents and recent graduates. 

The ladio industry as a profession L 
seriously occupying the minds of college 
men and women these days. Since col- 
leges are now providing instruction am. 
preparation for radio training, they set 
an opportunity to enter that branch oi 
the industry for which they feel quali- 

Radio as an industry is so new that, 
until recently, it had not seemed neces- 
sary to train young men and women for 
positions. But overnight radio has be- 
come a business that requires thousands 
of trained men and women to keep the 
machinery behind the microphone mov- 
ing day and night. 

At one time, a few adventurers came 
out of college and landed a job with a 
radio station just for the thrill of "being 
on the air." Some of them liked radio, 
learned the business, and now hold re- 
sponsible positions. Since there now is 
little time for radio executives to "break 
in" newcomers, they must come prepared 
to battle with important problems and 
decisions from the very first. 

In the programs to be presented, many 
interesting features will be among those 
included. Periods of light and classical 
music and song, sport chats to be pre- 
sented by well-known campus luminaries, 
and a serious talk, or the use of dia- 
logue, dramatic, interview or forum 
methods of discussing national affairs. 
Serious sketches as well as witty and 
sparkling dramatic presentations with 
scenes laid in college setting will also 
be featured. 

All of these programs will be student 
planned and student directed. Continui- 
ties for all programs will be prepared 
entirely by students. And only students 
will take part in the programs them- 
selves, as directors, continuity writers, 
speakers, musicians, or actors. 

Oscar Kavee, a former student at Co- 
lumbia University, will be in charge of 
the program. Communications regarding 
the program should be addressed to him 
at Six Maiden Lane, New York City.

the second quarter. Participants scat- 
tered at half-time for "Water". 

ihe second half got under way short- 
ly after io o'clock and rules were thrown 
to the wind when the players executed a 
"Flying Tackle" soon after the open- 
ing kickoff. i'o retaliate ior the mis- 
demeanor, the stronger players led to 
a " Touchdown". Many couples were 
"Offsides" during the next dance. A 
"Safety" was scored in the last live 
minutes of play, and the "Final Whistle" 
found the teams at an 8-o score. 

Personages among the spectators were 
Dr. and Mrs. S. H. Derickson, Dr. and 
Mrs. V. E. Light, ProL M. L. Stokes 
and Miss Janet Miller, and Dr. G. A. 

Officials of the "game" were : B. L.

Parenthetically speaking the "L" Club 
of the college is looking forward to 
next season when they hope to plan 
dances that will attract more students.

Honorary Banquet 

{Continued From Page i) 

Boyd Shaffer, speaking for the sons, 
delivered a short address, setting forth 
in an interesting manner the general at- 
titudes of college young men to their 
fathers. He elaborated also on the pur- 
pose of having such a meeting — namely, 
to bring the fathers into closer contact 
with their sons, and to give them a taste 
of collegiate atmosphere. 

In a fitting termination of the program, 
Prof. Carmean, dean of men, led the 
group in some well known songs. 

j he "dad" who came the farthest dis- 
tance to attend the Father and Son festi- 
vities here was Mr. Charles Kinney, who 
resides in Farmingdale, L. I. Two of 
Mr. Kinney's sons, Charles Jr., and 
Harlin, are students here, while a third, 
Allen graduated in the class of '31.

New Stage Feature To Be Introduced 
To Campus In Junior Play. 

With contributions secured from sev- 

1 j the campus organizations, Harold 
Phillips- president of the Wig and 
sickle has purchased a complete outfit 
{ stage lighting equipment. Mr. Phillips, 
w ho brought the equipment with him on 
his return from New York after the 
Thanksgiving recess, says that it will 
prove extremely useful in all affairs in- 
volving the use of the college stage. 

The Conservatory and the Wig and 
Buckle each contributed one-third of the 
total cost of the venture, and the other 
third was made up by five dollar con- 
tributions from each of the following or- 
ganizations: Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., 
the Men's Senate, the W. S. G. A., 
Philo, Clio, Kalo, and Delphian. 

As a result, it is expected that the new 
lights will be initiated into active service 
at the presentation of the Admirable 
Crichton, which is scheduled for Dec. II. 
Although it is impossible to divulge at 
present the precise nature of the novelty 
effects which Mr. Phillips and others 
are arranging, they promise a distinct 
departure from anything witnessed here- 
tofore on the local stage. 

The main features of the new lights 
consist in a large array of spotlights of 
various sizes, and dimmers which will 
make it possible to vary the intensity of 
any light in the house or on the stage to 
any candlepower desired. No lighting 
effect possible on any small college stage 
will be impossible here.

Recent Plays, Movies 
Reviewed By Readers 


Zweig, Glasgow, Tolstoi Are Among 
Authors Considered. 

The Readers' Club met at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Wallace on Nov. 25th. 
Recent plays, movies, and a few books 
of this fall were discussed. The chair- 
man for the evening's program was 
Maxine Early. 

The club first considered Blossom 
Time and The Student Prince. Emma 
Mary Smyser reviewed the two operettas 
and gave her impressions of their pres- 
entation at the Hershey Community 
Theatre. Kenneth Eastland told his im- 
pressions of the Shakespearean plays 
presented on our campus. His report 
was exceptionally interesting and led the 
club members to give their own 
opinions freely. 

Louise Gillan then reviewed the book, 
Mary, Queen of Soots by Stefan Zweig. 
This is a brilliant biography of the 
beautiful Queen Mary, whose strange 
and fascinating life has been the subject 
of many books. Miss Gillan spoke oi 
the highlights of the history of Mary 
and described her as she was presented 
in this book.

Famous Scientist 
Presents Address 

Dr. Knight Dunlap Advises 
How To Worry. 

Wednesday morning, Dr. Knight Dun- 
lap, noted psychologist of Johns Hop- 
kins department of psychology, ad- 
dressed the stude ; bo-dy in Chapel on 
the subject, "How To Worry Efficient- 
ly". He addressed the International Re- 
lations club the day before. 

Dr. Dunlap, Ph. B., M.L., (Califor- 
nia), A.M., Ph.D., (Harvard), is one oi 
the pioneers in the American field of 
psychology. G. Stanley Hall founded 
the first psychological laboratory in 
America in 1883 which was in existence 
for four or five years at which time it 
was dissolved when its founder left 
Johns Hopkins. The laboratory was 
started again in 1903 by J. B. Watson, 
the behaviorist, in conjunction with Dr. 

Dr. Dunlap has been outstanding in his 
field, especially in experimental work. 
Dr. Samuel Fernberger, the professor of 
Experimental Psychology at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania under whom 
Dr. Lynch studied, has said that, "Dun- 
lap ranks next to Dodge in developing 
experimental technique". Dr. Gardner 
Murphy in his book "An Historical In- 
troduction to Modern Psychology" says, 
"In 1919, Dunlap called in question the 
whole instinct doctrine (of psychology) 
as it had been developed by McDougall, 
Thorndike, Woodworth, and others, 
pointing out that the conduct of human 
beings is actually so extraordinarily 
complex that the concept of the pure or

Y-Conference to Meet on Campus 

The College Y. M. C. A. will be hosts 
to the Student-Faculty Conference of 
the State Y. M. C. A. this week-end. The 
conference will be composed of student 
and faculty representatives from vari- 
ous colleges in the state. The theme of 
the convention will be, "Christ in my 
professional life." Among the special 
speakers to be present will be Dr. Rob- 
ert J. Black, field secretary of the Pres- 
byterian Board of Education, Mr. C. P. 
Wuertenberger, Superintendent of the 
Conroy Prugh Class Company, of Pitts- 
burgh, and Mr. Philo C. Dix, executive 
secretary of the State Young Men's 

Christian Association of Pennsylvania. 
Conference sessions will he held Satur- 
day morning and afternoon. There will 
be panel discussions on subjects pertain- 
ing to vital problems of college stu- 
dents, and to opportunities in store for 

The Y. M. C. A. Cabinet has been 
making special plans for the entertain- 
ment of these representatives, and ex- 
perts the full cooperation of the student 
body in helping to make this a profitable 
week-end. The men-students are cordial- 
ly invited to take in all of these sessions. 


By Jean McKeag 

Somewhere in the collective mind of 
the Lebanon Valley drama patrons — in 
a niche labeled "enthusiastic respect" — 
on November 21, a definite and perma- 
nent place was set aside for The Wig and 
Buckle Dramatic Club. I refer, of 
course, to the reaction to the presenta- 
tion of The Late Chr ' stophcr Bean. 
Turning away from the chapel after the 
play, each and every sympathetically 
alert member of the audience was aware 
of a warmth of satisfaction — arising 
from the realization that the play was 
capably directed, well mounted, and en- 
thusiastically acted, that it had com- 
manded an encouraging turnout, and that 
the audience had demonstrated a growth 
n intelligent appreciation. 

The play itself was written by Sidney 
Howard. The sparkle of the individual 
lines of The Late Christopher Bean and 
the condensed and clean-cut nature of its 
action, all aside from the brilliance of 
its presentation, would probably have 
enabled the play to carry itself. The 
play opens with a humorously human 
group of characters elbowing their re- 
spective ways through humdrum prob- 
lems. This group quickly separates it- 
self into parties of the two eternally 
clashing vital forces : idealism and ma- 
terialism. In this case the materialists 
are represented in large part by the 
small souled New Englanders with their 
negative goodness and all that goes with 
it. The only part of the play out of

Student Problems 
Are Seminar Theme 

Mrs. Elliott Conducts Y 
Sponsored Meeting Here. 

The Y. W. C. A., assisted by the Y. 
M. C. A., sponsored an inspiring and en- 
lightening seminar here on the campus 
on Tuesday, Nov. 19. The meeting had 
been planned by the Y with the assist- 
ance of the eastern division of the Stud- 
ent Christian Movement in accordance 
with a program of such meetings held 
during the week in various colleges 
throughout the states. Of the five pro- 
pinquent colleges which had been in- 
vited to attend the seminar, three sent 
a fairly large group of representatives, 
namely, Millersville State Teachers' Col- 
lege, Franklin and Marshall College, and 
Kutztown State Teachers' College. There 
were twenty-one guests, students and 
faculty members, from these three col- 

Mrs. Grace Laucks Elliot of New 
York City, a writer and lecturer of con- 
siderable importance, conducted the semi- 
nar. Mrs. Elliot impresses one imme- 
diately with her vital interest in all of 
the problems of youth, and with the 
thoroughly practical manner in which 
she presents her solutions to the prob- 
lems. Her theme throughout the day in 
the time which she alloted to speaking 
was "Creative Living." 

{Continued on Page 4, Column 1) 


By Dr. Paul Wallace 

The Wig and Buckle club has come of 
age. On Thursday evening, Nov. 21, in 
Engle Hall, this young campus organiza- 
tion, in the first full-length production 
during its two years of life, took the 
college by storm with the presentation 
of Sidney Howard's play, "The Late 
Chr'stopher Bean." 

It was a well-rounded performance, in 
which credit goes not only to the cast 
but also to all those connected with the 
business and technical sides of the show. 

We must first congratulate Dr. Stru- 
ble, the director, for his discerning and 
highly competent casting, planning, and 
polishing. With his lively sense of 
dramatic values and with such a spirited 
company to back him, he succeeded in 
lifting this production quite above or- 
dinary amateur standards and gave us an 
evening of riotous entertainment. 

We must thank also the "background" 
people, including those engaged in publi- 
city and other business matters. The play 
was properly advertised (thanks largely 
to Richard Baus, Publicity Director), the 
programs were clearly printed and read- 
able, the tickets sellers were on the job. 
That the proceeds were beyond expecta- 
tion was evidence both of a good pre- 
l'.minary business drive and of loyal 
college support. The college will benefit 
permanently from the play by the im- 
proved stage equipment which the Wig 
and Buckle plans to purchase with its 

Harold Phillips as Stage Manager, 
Fred Saylor as Properties Man, and 
Robert Tilford as Stage Technician are 
to be specially commended. The stage 
setting was well balanced. There were 
enough properties to make the dining 
room intimate and realist'c, and yet the 
set was open, permitting free movement. 
An innovation was made by the use of 
the "cave" under the organ. It repre- 
sented a hallway, with the rear curtains 
so cleverly disposed as to give a quite 
natural effect. The shadows of the entry 
gave the impression of depth to the stage 
and retrieved the loss occasioned by the 
encroachments of the new organ on the 
floor space. Unusually effective entries 
were made possible by this means. Abby's 
silhouette, when she was watching at the 
door, was particularly effective. By skil- 
ful use of this back-stage "cavern", 
future productions may be saved from

Phillips, co-directors of the play, an- 
nounce that the cast will he in excellent 
shape to give a splendid presentation. 
The publicity and ticket committee, un- 
der the direction of Duey Unger, has 
been hard at work tvetting out posters, 
and otherwise advertising the play.

the flat effects to which stage sets are 
exposed in the chapel by being thrown 
so far forward toward the foot-lights. 

The play was well cast. The charac- 
ters were sharply individualized, and 
their conflicting egos presented with spir- 
it. Some of the interpretations bordered 
on the farcical, but all were sufficiently 
plausible to make the play exciting as 
well as laughable. 

Abby's part was a particularly diffi- 
cult one, and special honor should go to 
Miss Harclerode for her excellent 
handling of it. She kept the right tone 
throughout, and dominated the stage 
with her quiet patience and good humor 
(enlivened with occasional streaks of 
spite). Her simple common sense cut 
like a knife into the nerves of the money- 
mad crowd surrounding her. Miss H. 
caught the spirit of the part so well that 
she dominated the stage even when her 
voice sank so low (as it did at times) 
that the audience was unable to catch 
what she said. 

Robert Spohn gave a good representa- 
tion of Dr. Haggett — the tragic figure 
of a man dragged from "gentle thoughts 
of a medical description" to a half-day's 
career of bluster and greed. The sharp 
changes in his manner were well handled 
— even to his profound close-lidded ex- 
cogitations (he thought best with his eyes 
jhut, and no wonder, with such a family 
round him). We never quite lost sym- 
pathy with the old scoundrel, and at 
times felt even a touch of admiration: 
ne came nearer than anyone I have ever 
3 een to lifting himself with his own 

Susan Haggett's gentle ways and 
timid rebellion presented a proper foil 
to the test of the household. The part 
was well taken by Miss Louise Stoner, 
who made a dainty and appealing hero- 
ine in the romantic sub-plot. Her part- 
ner in this action was Lester Krone as 
Warren Creamer, the diffident young 
house painter who felt a call to paint 
portraits. Krone gave the part a subtle 
twist, showing Warren artless and mod- 
est, but yet boastful— a gentle victim of 
that modern disease, the inferiority com- 
plex. Screen favorites take warning. If 
Krone should take it into his head to 
go to Hollywood, Joey Brown will have 
to go back to baseball. 

Mrs. Haggett's explosions of domestic 
dynamite were effectively presented by 
Miss Anna Morrison, whose terrific 
tones dominated all other sounds on the 
stage except the still, small voice of her 
servant, Abby. The part was boldly and 
skilfully handled. Mrs. H. was made to 
play a convincing second fiddle to her 
nervous, ratty, machine-gun-voiced hus- 
band, in whose heavy-lidded ruminations 
she reposed such touching confidence. 

Ada Haggett— loud, selfish, jealous, 
and tearful— was well presented by Miss 
Dorothy Kreamer, who made the best of 
an unpleasant part. Ada stormed and 
wept like a thunderstorm, did the "grande 
dame" a la Mrs. Ji ggs , and made herself 

so ostentatiously unpleasant that her 
downfall at the hands of Susan and 
Abby was enough in itself to send the 
audience home in a good humor. 

The entrance of William Clark as the 
vidian Tallant was received with exuber- 
ant applause by the audience. His shifty 
eyes and uncertain mustaches, unex- 
pected movements, and general air of 
self-conscious diablerie made good farce 
and provided another strikingly unusual 
figure to the rogue's gallery assembled 
in this play. 

Another excellent grotesque was Ros- 
en, the art swindler, played by Fred 
Saylor with great gusto. In accent, 
make-up, changes of tone, and hand-play 
the part was well done — piquant and 
plausible. The nervous over-emphasis 
given to word and gesture fitted the part 
and contributed much to the hilarious 
mood of the audience. 

The part of Davenport, art criti c 
gentleman, was well taken by 
Tilford, who deserves high prai Se ?rt 
the quiet restraint, as befitted the *° r 
of his acting. Every word and 
was effective. As a foil to Rosen he ^ 
just right. His quiet and seemingly^ 
advertent brushing with his fing er ^ 
of the spot where Rosen's hand 1'^ 
touched his shoulder, was one of 
many significant details in the p i; . 
finish of his acting. He, like Abby 
a foil to the others; and he helped 
give us a measure from the realms *° 
common decency with which to estim a ^ 
the roguery of the engaging blackgu^ 
who formed the mainspring of the actio' 

Too much praise cannot be given to § 
spirit and liveliness which, with nece- 
sary exceptions, animated the character 
throughout. The dialogue and action 
were swift and unfaltering. The play j^, 
set a good tempo for the year. 

Notes From A College Freshman's Diary 


Tuesday, November 19 — Well, I never! 
Was out with Rudy tonight. Kidded him 
along and gave him a little peck. The 
boy almost fainted and then he came to 
and acted as though 1 was his wife. 
Child psychology, 1 calls it. 

Wednesday, November 20 — T here 
won't be any excuse for the boys to be 
late for classes after this Clio affair. 
V\ orked up a list of the couples that are 
going. Some of the odder teams: 

Lucille Mayberry — Ed Geary or 
Charles Kinney, Carolyn Kohler — Ray 
Moyer, Sally Meckley — Sam Rutter, 
iietty Bender — Bob Spohn, Virginia 
Jtiritton — Ken Eastland, Martha Faust — 
"Sandy', Gayle Mountz — Jack Glenn, 
Grace Naugle — Bill Earnest, Janet Hol- 
singer— Frank Boran, Bunny Zamojski 
— John Trego, Martha Baney — John Tin- 
dall, Miriam Eichner — Pete Fridinger, 
Dorothy Kreamer — Howe Keiter. Muth, 
Krone, Shaffer, Snell, Messersmith, etc., 
will of course be there as usual. 

Thursday, November 21 — Dad was 
down for show. Thought it was swell. 
Honest, it's a riot. Rudy thinks he owns 
me. The simp didn't bat an eyelash when 
I ordered a quintuplet. Curse the luck, 
I can't get a man for Clio. 

Friday, November 22 — Missed the con- 
serve dance. I must have worked the 
old Army game too often on these soft- 

Saturday, November 23 — Rudy thinks 
he can pull the wool over this old sol- 
dier's eyes. Was hinting for a bid. I 
cooled him off a bit. 

Sunday, November 24 — They ought to 
start these NY A workers digging a moat 
around this dorm. It's a fortress, I'm 
tellin' you. 

Monday, November 25 — Better settle 
my balance before the penguin blows a 

Tuesday, November 26 — Couldn't eat 
after hearing prof talk about cows, T.B., 
pus bags, sausages, and the tank. Date 
with Rudy. Gave something that'll last 
him a couple months. 

Wednesday. Sunday — *. 

Monday, December 2— Heard math, 
dept. got a shipment of red leads big 
enough to last Yale U. for ten years. 
Also heard Casey struck out in the con- 
serve. Too bad, old boy, but don't for- 
get — patience is a virtue. Still haven't 
got a man. All reserved. What'U I do? 

Late Flash — Judy capitulated and will 
appear at dance with Rudy. Rudy is, at 
time of writng, being fitted with a new 
tux and vermillion garters and suspen- 
ders to match. 

* Judy's physical condition over 
Thanksgiving did not permit violent ex- 
ercise such as diary. writing. 


Tuesday, November 19 — Well, things 
went ditterently this time. I gu ess j 
have Judy in the bag now. But if We 
get any more serious than we were to- 
night i believe we better break off. \ 
have my lessons to think of. 

Wednesday, November 20 — Cut two 
classes today. Believe I'll drop a hint to 
Judy about a Clio bid. Might as well, 
Joe says I'm not the same since last 
night. Well, boys become men some- 
time. I tried a cigarette today and 1 
find they're very mild. I'll buy a cigar 
one of these little old days. Ho-hum. 

Thursday, November 21 — Family was 
down for the play tonight. I sort of 
left them shift for themselves. It wasn't 
a bad performance for amateurs, but 
I've seen better. Drank a coke with 
J udy. She had a quintuplet sundae. Be- 
believe I'll drop the folks a letter for 
more money. 

Friday, November 22 — Dropped in at 
the Conserv Dance tonight and sort of 
mingled with the crowd. I didn't see 
Judy. I suppose I should have asked 
her to go, but one can't think of every- 

Saturday, November 23 — A boy named 
Leech suffered a slight injury of the 
head in returning on the bus from Dela- 
ware. Asked Judy if she's going to the 
Clio dance, and she said, "No, dearest," 
but didn't ask me. That's queer. 

Sunday, November 24 — Smoked a Ci- 
gar. Didn't feel so well. Some fell"* 
said, "Let me see you in h— ," and I told 
him to be careful of his language. 

Monday, November 25— Several other 
girls on campus I shall date in the n ear

their reactions.

harmony with its general tendency to- 
ward realism is its conclusion in which 
Abby, the idealist, is rewarded by the ac- 
quirement of money, a thing which, if 
the point of the play were made, would 
be non-essential to her happiness, and the 
materialists are punished by loss of 
money. This conclusion, in addition to 
putting a severe strain on the present 
keeness for the logical and the likely, 
defeats all possibility of proving that 
happiness does not depend upon the pos- 
session of things — a point which the 
playwright has apparently worked up to. 

However, this inconsistency in the play 
itself was effectively covered by the con- 
sistently realistic interpretations of the 
cas t. This was especially true of Sylva 
Harclerode's performance. Even to the 
Ver y last moment she retained the sym- 
pathy of the audience through her grasp

tl{ul simplicity of Abby character—

maiden lady of the anxious age, handled 
their parts capably. Putting pointed and 
intense blasts of energy behind her lines, 
Anna Morrison gave a well nigh per- 
fect portrayal of the typical "battle-axe." 
Fred Saylor turned tongue and fingers 
temporarily Jewish, and William Clark, 
especially in the first act, showed flashes 
of capacity for clever characterization. 

Fred Saylor and Robert Tilford do- 
serve commendation for their successes 
as stage manager and stage technician 
respectively. As for the make-up — it 
did its job all too thoroughly to have 
attracted attention to itself, which is, I 
believe the highest compliment possible 
to the skill of Harold Phillips who was 
in charge of it. 

In the final analysis, it is, I suppose, 
with the direction, that the success or 
failure of a play lies, and to the co- 
directors, Dr. George Struble and Har- 
old Phillips, goes the final tribute !

Susquehanna Team 

Co-eds Work Smoothly To 
Tune of 5-2 Victory. 

The Lebanon Valley hockey team de- 
feated Susquehanna by the score of 5-2 
on Thursday, Nov. 21. In the first half 
most of the playing took place in Sus- 
quehanna territory and three goals were 
scored. Susquehanna managed to score 
one. In the second half Lebanon Valley 
scored two more goals and Susquehan- 
na one. 

The Lebanon Valley team exemplified 
team work and cooperation. The for- 
ward line was especially brilliant, Velma 
Gingrich and Lynch dividing top scor- 
ing honors with two goals each. 

At the end of the game Mary Appier, 
left fullback of Susquehanna, was ac- 
cidentally injured. She spent the night 
in the infirmary. She was not seriously 
hurt however.

Vein of Iron by Ellen Glasgow was

of iron is a strong, inflexible will, a 
characteristic of the Finncastle family. 
The story is that of Ada Finncastle, a 
very modern girl. As Miss Kauffman 
said, Vein of Iron would be an enjoy- 
able book for any college student, par- 
ticularly for a student of sociology. 

A consideration of two recent movies

the book very closely, and, to most peo-

Blue And White Win 

In Final Grid Scrap 


Mud Hen Fumbles Prove Costly As 
Alert Valleyites Win. 

Lebanon Valley College's eleven jour- 
neyed to Newark, Delaware, two weeks 
ago to bring the 1935 grid season to a 
close with an 18-0 victory over Dela- 

Scoring an even dozen tallies before 
the first period was ten minutes old, the 
Flying Dutchmen were never in danger 
of being defeated in the season's finale. 
They added a third touchdown in the last 
quarter to complete the scoring and finish 
the season with a record of five victories 
to more than balance defeats by Penn 
State, Fordham, Drexel, and Albright. 

Delaware put on display a fair run- 
ning and passing attack, but fumbles by 
the Mud Hen ball-carriers prevented 
them from seriously threatening to score 
against the Blue and White. Alert 
Valley defenders captalized on all the 
opportunities which were offered them 
by the Delawarians, with recoveries by 
the Flying Dutchmen of the Delaware 
fumbles giving Lebanon Valley its scor- 
ing chances while at the same time halt- 
ing the advances of the foe. 

Valley's first score came early in the 
first session when L. Carey fumbled one 
of Kress' punts as he was tackled by 
Kniley, with Kroske recovering the oval 
for the Blue and White on the Dela- 
ware 45. On the first play Kress tossed 
a forward to Tindall who was not 
downed until he had reached the 20. 
Tindall and Kress alternated at carry- 
ing the ball to give Valley a first down 
on the 3-yard line. Tindall slid off tackle 
for the score, with Kniley's attempted 
conversion being blocked. 

Less than two minutes later the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen had scored again. Gordon 
Davies intercepted a Delaware forward 

on his own 35-yard line and returned it 
to the Delaware 3c, where he lateraled to 
Bartolet, who was downed on the 20. 
Kress, on a fake end run, faded back 
and hurled an aerial to Fridinger on the 
10-yard stripe, with the Valley full- 
back dashing the remaining distance to 
a score. Kniley's attempted conversion 
went wide of the uprights. 

Another offensive drive shortly after- 
ward ended unsuccessfully when Tony 
Rozman's attempt at a field goal from 
placement hit the upright. 

Delaware threatened to score several 
times in the third period, but the Mud 
Hens were unable to make any headway 
when they advanced as far as the Blue 
and White 20-yard line, and several 
fumbles put sudden stops to the forward 
drives of the Delawarians. 

A 55-yard run by Tindall accounted 
for Lebanon Valley's final points in the 
last period. With the Flying Dutchmen in 
possession of the pigskin on their own 
45-yard line, Tindall tore through the 
weak side of the line on a reverse play, 
with some nifty interference and some 
neat side-stepping by the Valley quarter- 
back pushing the oval over the final 
white stripe. T. Rozman's placement 
kick attempt for the extra point was 
wide of the uprights. 

Bartolet and Sponaugle, the only two 
seniors on the Valley squad, brought 
their collegiate careers to an auspicious 
close with a fine exhibition of offensive 
and defensive play as the bulwarks of 
the forward wall, with Kniley, Davies, 
Poloniak, and Kroske also showing up 
well in the front lines, and Kress, Tin- 
dall, Walmer, T. Rozman, and Fridinger 
starring in the backfield.

Church. The program was in charge of 
Mark Hostetter. The devotions were led 
by Sara Lupton. Irene Ranck played 
"In a Monastery Garden," and Rose 
Tschopp sang "This Is My Task." Fol- 
lowing this theme, Betty Bender pre- 
sented a very impressive address. A 
vocal solo, "Behold the Saviour Passeth 
By" was sung by Virginia Niessner. 
Mark Hostetter offered the benediction. 



OUR OFFER TO PIPE SMOKERS: Smoke 20 fragrant pipefuls of Prince 
Albert. If you don't find it the mellowest, tastiest pipe tobacco you ever 
smoked, return the tin with the rest of the tobacco in it, and we will refund 
full purchase price, plus postage. 

(Signed) R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., Winston-Salem. N. C. 

Here's the way we look at the 
smoking-tobacco question : Any- 
body can say, 1 ' My brand is best 
— please try my kind." 

Our way is different. We say: 
"Try Prince Albert. We believe 
you'll like it. But, if you're not 
delighted, we make good on your 
purchase." And so, on the fair 
and square basis that you 
must be pleased, we ask 

you to try Prince Albert in your 
pipe. You'll like it! 

Hits the Taste of College Men! 

This unusual offer can be made be- 
cause we know that Prince Albert 
is what college men are looking for 
in a mild pipe tobacco. They try 
it. They liLe it. That's the story 
of Prince Albert in a nutshell. 
Prince Albert is packed right- 

in tin. Your tobacco keeps in prime 
condition. And there are 2 ounces 
in the big red Prince Albert tin.

Exam Blues Fade At 
Conservatory Frolic 


Floor Show, Prizes, Souvenirs, Sweet- 
And-Low Melodies Captivate Merry- 

A very colorful Carnival Dance and 
Floor Show was held Friday Nov. 22 in 
the College Gymnasium sponsored by the 
Conservatory of Music. Brilliantly col- 
ored pennants and notes, lyres and clef 
signs in blue and white, together pre- 
sented the "gym" in its full array 01 
Carnival regalia. In addition, Carnival 
hats of all shades and tints thinkable 
were presented to everyone as they en- 
tered. Later, confetti and serpentine, 
tinted in all the hues of the rainbow, 
were passed around to the crowd. 

Three lovely prizes were given — the 
Door Prize, a box of candy to Razelle 
Levitz and Azer Smeyne, the Spot Prize, 
a box of soft drinks to Lucille Maberry 
and Charles Kinney, and the Cake Prize 
to Amy Meinhart and Curwin Dellinger. 

The Floor Show consisted of a widely 
varied program such as a Toe Dance by 
Jean Myers of Harrisburg; Vocal 
Solos, "I Wish I Were Aladdin" ana 
"A Little White Gardenia" by Donald 
Worley; a Tap Dance by Jean Myers; 
a Vocal Trio, "I'm in the Mood for 
Love" and "Speak to Me of Love" by 
Gayle Mountz, Charlotte Stabley, and 
Helen Summy; and lastly a magician's 
act by Robert Tilford; with the honor- 
able Mr. Tilford as Master of Cere- 
monies. There was splendid dance music 
which completed a perfect evening for 
everyone and for those who did not 
come, we say "You certainly missed it." 

Student Problems 

Are Seminar Theme 

(Continued From Page i) 

The afternoon session, beginning ai 
4:30 P. M., consisted of a short talK by 
Mrs. Elliot concerning the reiationsnius 
between students ana members 01 ui>~ 
faculty. She presented tlie typical camp- 
us problem in a new light, inere aic 
faculty members who tilinK students 
cannot think, but there are just as many 
students who do not reahy want to tnin^. 
'the faculty may not always grade on 
marks alone, but students are not always 
honest (We call such students "liana- 
shakers"). Then too, lacuuy members 
cannot always do what they want any 
more than can students, because a lor- 
midable board of trustees looms belore 

Mrs. Elliott's evening discussion was 
centered around the problems 01 student 
relationships. She pointed out the evi- 
dent fact that in a true friendship, nei- 
their person can possess the other. Jeal- 
ousy and the demand for perfection in 
another are both childish characteristics. 
Men and women must be nearly equal, 
so that the one will not dominate the 
other to the extent that the real value 01 
the existence of two persons comple- 
mentary to another and forming a worth 
while friendship shall be lost. The ad- 
justments made in the various lives 01 
friends who are unlike one another make 
this a better balanced world. 

Mrs. Elliot argued against steady 
couples, a problem on any small co- 
educational campus. She asked that col- 
lege people try to realize the extreme 
importance of a wide variety of friends 
toward broadening one's personality. In 
concluding her talk, she gave the follow- 
ing as the three test of maturity in a 
person : 

1. Knowing what one wants. 

2. Being able to wait for what one 

3- The ability to set limitation.

What shall we say lirst-' The other 
week this writer gave a definition for 
Americanism, but since that time some 
new ones have been found. "American- 
ism; Establishing a government to make 
the people free and happy; taxing the 
people ragged to support the govern- 
ment. . . . Feeding jobless millions; al- 
lowing Mexicans to cross the border, 
work for American wages, and go back 
home at night to spend their money.' 
This is beginning to sound like those 
daily excerpts we hear in room 5.

Heard a professor say one day in Ge- 
netics class that only a very thin line 
marks genius from insanity. In a little

it's true that you seldom see black boys 
sitting on the hills watching white men 
build roads. Benito can't lose. If he 
doesn't get more land African fevers 
will at least help him overcome the den- 
sity of population. England's fleet seems 
to be sticking around to see that Italy

vertising isn't costing anything). 

Just for the spirit of it we took a poll 
of the amount of money carried by the 
first ten fellows we met on the campus. 
The result was eighteen cents per man.

group with the thought of "playing 
the game" earnestly and sincerely. 
Devotions were in charge of Harold

Friday Evening 


Anniversary At Lincoln Is Occasion 
Of Distinct Beauty. 

The Clionian Literary Society held its 
sixty-fifth Anniversary Dance Dec. 6 at 
8 p. m. in the Abraham Lincoln Hotel 
it Reading. 

The soft lights and general air of 
elegance which pervaded the marble 
ballroom where Ralph Moore's Castle 
Garden Orchestra, an individual type of 
dance music, according to a number of 
those who attended the affair, contributed 
much toward the felicity of the occasion. 

There were luxurious divans placed 
around the sides of the dance floor. Here 
the chaperones, Mrs. Mary C. Green, 
Prof, and Mrs. Edward P. Rutledge, and 
Dr. and Mrs L. G. Bailey, remarked on 
the opulent rugs which appeared to be 
of Oriental origin. Other faculty mem- 
bers who were present as guests, Dr. 
and Mrs. Hiram Shenk, Dr. and Mrs. O. 
E. Reynolds, and Prof, and Mrs. D. .C. 
Carmean expressed similar sentiments. 

The opening president was Louise 
Shearer; the anniverarv president, Vir- 
ginia Summers. The dance committee 
consisted of Sara K. Meckley, who made 
arrangements for the presentation of 
>mall wooden clocks inscribed with the 
society letters as favors, Gayle Mountz, 
who provided for the orchestra, and 
Eleanor Engle who selected the place.

an encore by Miss Helen Summy, and 
a piano solo by Miss Ruth Buck. 

After the program tea and cake were 
served, with Mrs. Green and Mrs. Grimm 
presiding at the tea table. Miss Louise

Pardon Us! ! 

Contrary to the information pub- 
iished last week in La Vie, the Wig 
and Buckle will sponsor a perform- 
ance not by the Piccoli Puppets, but 
by the Olvera Marionette Shozvs. 
The error appearing in last week's 
article was due to the fact that C. 
Ray Smith, manager of the Olvera 
Company, assisted in the marionette 
work done by the Piccoli Troupe in 
the photoplay, / am Suzanne. 

Mr. Smith's organization is the 
largest of its kind in this country; 
it has a cast of more than a hundred 
and has no connections at present with 
the Piccoli company. 


An interesting and rather unusual

sold. The articles sold were all products 
of the Novelty Art Shop, Minneapolis, 

The Y. W. C. A. was able to clear ap- 
proximately ten dollars through the Ba- 
zaar. This money will be placed in the 
office in the special Y. W. C. A. fund 
and will be used during the year toward

been reassembled in preparation for a

they will oppose the University of

Fifteen Colleges 
Send Delegates 
To Y-Conference 


Many Notables Speak As L. V. En- 
tertains Stu3ent-Faculty Convention. 

Ninety-seven student delegates, repre- 
senting fifteen colleges of Eastern Penn- 
sylvania, registered at the Student-Fa- 
culty conference held at our campus over 
the past week end. The conference was 
promoted under the auspices of the State 
Y. M. C. A., and was under the personal 
direction of Harry C. Gintzer, the State 
Student Secretary. 

At the first meeting, which was the 
dinner on Friday evening, Dr. Clyde A. 
Lynch gave a short address of welcome 
to the delegates, outlining also some 
'deals for the conference. Later in the 
evening Dr. Robert J. Black, field Sec- 
retary of the Presbyterian Board of 
Education, delivered an address on "In- 
vestments." He spoke not of financial 
matters, but rather about investments in 
character, keeping in mind the theme of 
f he conference, "Christ in My Profes- 
sional Life". This address was followed 
by an open forum at which Dr. Black 
presided. This meeting was held in the 
Engle Conservatory. 

Saturday morning Mr. Chas. P. Wuer- 
tenberger, General Manager of the Con- 
-oy-Prugh Glass Company of Pittsburgh, 
delivered an address on the subject "See- 
ing Oneself in the Mirror of Life." Mr. 
Wuertenberger made his discourse the 
more interesting by injecting into it his 
Christian attitude, which, he explained, is 
never detrimental to sound business. 
Following this the group divided itself 
into three discussion classes. One class 
met with Dr. W. H. Wilt to discuss 
"Professing Christians in the Profes- 
sions," another group studied "Profes- 
sion and Influence" with Dr. H. D. 
Hoover of Gettysburg Seminary, while 
a third delegation attacked the problem 
of "Professing and Possessing a Y. M. 
C. A.", with Charles "Pop" Kelchner, 
General Secretary, Lebanon Y. M. C. A., 
as its leader. The entire conference then 
posed for a picture on North Hall steps. 

The Saturday afternoon session con- 
sisted of a panel forum concerning the 
"Y" program in the colleges, and a meet- 
ing of the State Student Council. 

The Conference banquet, at which Dr. 
R. R. Butterwick was toastmaster, was 
held in the dining hall on Saturday even- 
ing. Mr. Kelchner of the Lebanon Y. M. 
C. A., delivered a stirring speech on 
"Personal Responsibility."

Attention, Organization Heads 

Members of various organizations have commented on the fact that the La 
Vie Coi.legienne covers the news from certain of the organized groups on the 
campus more completely than it does others. Although the La Vie attempts to 
cover all the activities on the campus, it is true some groups have commanded 
more of our attention than others. 

There are several reasons for this. In the first place, some organizations are 
much more active than others necessarily creating more news by their very ac- 
tivity. This fact seems self-evident. Secondly, the news from certain groups has 
by its very nature a much greater news value to a greater number of our readers 
than has that from most other groups. However, you will find that we are always 
glad to accept news from the tiniest source, so long as it really is news. Thirdly, 
the most wide awake organizations on the campus have press agents that supply 
us with information concerning their group. 

This idea of press agents is a new one for the school. All active organizations 
are included in regular beat assignments which are covered weekly. Our reporters 
complain, however, that in covering their beats they often have difficulty in find- 
ing an officer of the organization who really knows what his group is going to do 
in the next week or two and, consequently, advance notices of coming events are 
often missed and the event may not be covered at all until its news value has 
diminished almost to nil. The press agent is the remedy for this. It is his business 
to see that the paper has advance information regarding every activity of any 
importance that his club undertakes. May we suggest that if your club's work 
has any value it is important to you and to others that the La Vie's readers hear 
of it. 

Does your organization have a press agent?

Fifteen Colleges Send 
Delegates To Y-Conferenee 

(Continued From Page i) 

At 9:30 on Sunday morning the con- 
ference met in the Conservatory to re- 
ceive the reports of the discussion groups 
and of the committee on resolutions. The 
last item on the program was an address 
in the College Church by Mr. Philo C. 
Dix, the State Y. M. C. A. Administra- 
tive and Executive Secretary. 

The L. V. C. students who furnished 

musical entertainment at various times 
for the benefit of the conference were: 
Oleta Dietrich, Marian Treo, Donald 
Worley, Rose Tschopp and Helen Sum- 

The following is a copy of the report 
which the resolutions committee sub- 
mitted on the last morning of the con- 

"Whereas, we have been shown gra- 
cious hospitality by President Lynch, the 
faculty, student body, the Y. M. C. A. 
of Lebanon Valley College and our hosts 
in the private homes of Annville; and 
whereas, the speakers and leaders of the 
discussion groups have so generously 
given of their time and effort in making 
this conference a success, be it resolved 
that we, the delegates to the Student- 
Faculty Conference here assembled, do 
express our sincere appreciation and 
heartfelt gratitude. 

Be it further resolved that the dele- 
gates seek to practise the theme of the 
Conference, "Christ in My Professional 
Life", on their respective campuses." 

Poverty is just a state of mind creat- 
ed bv a neighbor's new car. 


Since the close of the football season 
the band has been hard at work on con- 
cert numbers in their weekly practices. 
Tentative plans are being made to take 
the entire fifty piece band on an extended 
tour in the early spring. Meanwhile 
regular practices are being held to pre- 
pare for miscellaneous concerts during 
the winter months. 

College night will be held at the 
Church on Sunday evening, Dec. 15. The 
Church choir will appear on the first half 
of the program while seven members of 
the Conservatory of Music will appear 
on the second half of the program. 
Those who will participate are Charlotte 
Stabley, contralto; Donald Worley, bari- 
tone ; Carl Schmidt, clarinetist and the 
violin quartet composed of Martha Elser, 
Oleta Dietrich, Helen Butterwick and 
Russell Hatz. 

Sunday afternoon, Dec. 15, another of 
the monthly Musical Programs will be 
given at the Hill Church, north of Ann- 
ville. Those appearing will be Nancy 
Bowman, pianist; Helen Summy, sopra- 
no ; Anthony Jagnesak, flutist ; Russel 
Hatz, violinist ; Beatrice Fink, soprano ; 
Robert Breen cornetist and a vocal trio 
composed of Gayle Mountz, Charlotte 
Stabley and Helen Summy. 

Some time ago a group of Conserva- 
tory Chorus members motored to Lan- 
caster and presented a concert at the 
First Methodist Church. Tuesday even- 
ing, the Lancaster choir, with Donald 
Nixdorfj directing, is reciprocating by 
presenting a Christmas concert in Engle 
Hall. The choir is one of Lancaster's 
outstanding choirs and for a number of 
years has given concerts in nearby cities. 

The Conservatory Symphony Orches- 
tra will appear on the same program and 
will present two well known composi- 
tions. They will be Schubert's 'Unfin- 
ished Symphony' and Elgar's 'Pomp and 

This program will be quite interesting 
and certainly worth hearing, especially 
since it is so widely varied. Everyone 
is urged to come, for there will be no 
charge for admission. 

Two weeks ago two students, Gayle 
Mountz. soprano, and Ruth Buck, pian- 
ist, motored to Harrisburg to try out for 
membership to the Wednesday Club, the 
foremost Women's Musical Organization 
of that city. The try-out, they thought, 
was very fair and allowed no partiality, 
for they performed back of curtains 
while the judges made their decisions. 
Both girls were received as members in- 
fo the organization. 

Campus Cuts 

When a fellow needs a friend! Dick 
Rader found himself shut out in the cold, 
wide world one day last week when he 
returned from the showers. His unscru- 
pulous roommate, it seems, had locked 
the door and thrown the key away. Al- 
though Dick pleaded, pounded, and pout- 
e-\ the door remained very shut. Then 
the Rader waxed frantic! With long 
trides he paced the cliff dwellers' cor- 
ridor to and fro, calling down in no un- 
certain terms catastrophes of the direct 
kind upon the perpetrator of the out- 
rage. His eye displayed a murderous 
gleam, and generous expanses of his pink 
hide showed rhymically as his robe 
flapped about in the draft. After sonic 
f everal minutes the door "miraculously'' 
opened! Evidently Rader, in cruising 
through his wide vocabulary, had stum- 
bled upon the magic word! Evidently 
the incident had a happy ending, as the 
pifient was observed in the dining hall 
» few minutes later sitting up and tak- 
ing nourishment. 

One of the nice looking conservatory 
seniors was conducting her class of wee 
small tots in Hershey under the practice 

teaching program. She was having the 
young fry imitate the birdies in the tn-e 
tops. (This is the part that kills me!) 
Turning to one of the little singers, she 
put on her brightest smile and said, 
"Now, let's be a little cuckoo !" — ! ! Tck ! 
Tck! What was the child's reaction,

Some of the day students from Har-

The waiters were eating breakfast a 
few mornings ago, and the customary 
smacking of lips was the order of the 
moment. Suddenly, without warning, the 
strident voice of Curwin Dellinger 
sounded forth in a series of exclamations 
betokening unusual amazement and sur- 
prise. "Look here, everybody," he shout- 
ed excitedly, "here's a freak orange." 

It turned out, however, that Dellinger, 
and not the orange, was the freak, since 
he had cut the fruit the wrong way. 

Lloyd Daniel Berger, the quarter tac- 
kle on the soph team last Saturday, was 
the object of considerable protest com- 
ing from members of the frosh team. 
Since there were not enough helmets to 
go around, Berger played bare-headed, 
and that fact is precisely what occa- 
sioned the complaints. Lloyd was forth- 
with removed from the game. One of the 
frosh athletes, who was interviewed af- 
ter the game, summed up the situation 
in this way. "The sophomores were try- 

ing to kill us, that's why they p u j. 
ger in there bare-headed." ^ et -

Thursday, December 5 — Met a zipper 
expert tonight. Says he knows zippers 
from the ground up. The inventor gets 
a half cent on each zipper made. He 
must be a Talon-ted fellow. 

Friday, December 6 — The girls cer- 
tainly had their hair fixed up fancy to- 
day. Judy and I had a beautiful even- 
ing. We spent the intermission in the 
lounge, from where we could observe 
the dean sipping a soda in the soda- 
grill. Judy wanted me to buy some ex- 
pensive doo-dad that she saw in a shop 
window, but I told her that although 
most people in my situation become lib- 
eral, I become tight. Judy refused me 
after the dance, which I thought was 
crude, but I guess she was sort of mad 
because I tread on her foot once. 

Saturday, December 7 — The sophs beat 
us in football, 20-0. I'm sure if our 
team had followed my advice to play on 
guard, instead of off-tackle, we should 
have been victorious. 

Sunday, December 8 — "Boo-boo" had 
his girl up to see his room. He has her 
picture among his mineral exhibits. 

Monday, December 9— Attended class- 
es and drank several sodas.

Tuesday, December 3 — Finally had to 
ask Rudy to Clio. Lou tried to help me 
and asked about twenty fellows in the 
dorm, but they wouldn't have none of 
me. I almost believe I'm a B. O. or a 
V. O. within. 

W ednesday, December 4 — Fell asleep 
in chapel. Got fitted up in a new by- 
swing Trixie, No. 2, for the dance. 

Thursday, December 5 — Paper came 
out tonight. Was Lucille mad about that 
item from my diary? \Veli, I've taken 
about six degrees so far for these socie- 
ties. They've raised the devil about me 
joining both societies, but they can't de- 
cide which one to kick me out of. 

Friday, December — That music in 
chapel this morning worked me up into 
a romantic mood, but did it fade to- 
night! Had to wait, in the first place, 
for a half hour until the maids finally 
got Razelle dressed. I was plenty sore ! 
And what a dance! I believe Rudy must 
spread the hoof-and-mouth disease, be- 
cause I swear I tasted leather when he 
started to trip the light fantastic, as he 
calls it. Some of the gang ran out of 
gas on the way home, and Krone, that 
red-head, was pulled in for running a 
red light. Tried to gold-dig the simp, 
but he crawled into his shell and cracked 
some lousy pun. He said he wanted to 
take me up to the Pagoda because that's 
where his parents were betrothed. What 
rot ! Well, next year's another year. 

Saturday, December 1 — Saw Frosh- 
Soph football game. This Frosh crew is 
a bunch of sissies. I'll bet I would have 
scored if I had walked onto the field. 

Sunday, December 8 — One of these 
West Hall dames claims her ancestors 
were royalty. Says she sprang from a 
long line of peers. I asked her if she

he's stroking the freshman crew. Be- 
lieve I'll transfer.

Coach Nash Higgins has developed a

He is an exponent of the open style of 
play, and anything is liable to happen 
any time his Spartans are in possession 
of the pigskin. 

The Valleyites will be at a distinct dis- 
advantage when they face the Tampans, 
for the long trip, the change of tempera- 
ture, and other conditions are not con- 
ducive to the best in football. However, 
several of the regular season's casualties

contest, and the Spartans should find the

The following quoted material is tak- 
en from the News and Observer, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. Mr. Snavely is an alum- 
nus of Lebanon Valley. 

Carl G. Snavely, the Lebanon Valley 
man drafted from Bucknell, is being 
hailed as a miracle man in his second 
year in charge of the Blue and White 
(of the University of North Carolina). 

With many other schools having better 
material as a whole and vastly more re- 
serve strength, the North Carolina var- 
sity is considered an accurate gauge of 
the coaching ability of Snavely, who took 
Chuck Collins' leftovers in 1934 and went 
on to turn in the finest record made by 
a modern North Carolina team. Snave- 
ly in his inaugural year lost only to Ten- 
nessee and was tied only by North Caro- 
lina State. 

Snavely is a football professor. He 
studies the game night and day, day in 
and day out. He prepares question- 
naires for his men that are complete 
and instructive. The Tar Heels acquire 
much of the knowledge that makes them 
so smart on the field from these ques- 

Snavely employs all the up-to-date 
practices, such as motion pictures, which 
give his men an opportunity to see their

On Dec. 7 the Lebanon Valley hockey 
team defeated Susquehanna University 
2-1. The coach, Miss Esther Henderson, 
could not be there because of a minor ac- 
cident, and the team fought especially 
hard to win. Susquehanna worked des- 
perately to avenge their previous defeat 
with the result that the half ended with 
the score tied at 1-1. In the second half 
Wanda Price scored the winning goal. 
Ernestine Jagnesak deserves special 
honor for her brilliant offensive and de- 
fensive work at the center halfback posi- 
tion. Time and time again she slammed 
the ball out of Lebanon Valley territory 
into a scoring position.

Notes on Books 

"If you're longing now for laughter, 
Just take along a book; 
If it's romance that you're after, 

Why take along a book. 
If adventure seems to hold you, 

If tales of love enfold you, 
Just remember that we told you 
To take along a book." 

— Helen Harper. 

W hy not make this the motto of ev- 
ery one! Certainly there are some times 
when a book would just suit your pres- 
ent mood. 

The following books will range within 
the chief interests of everyone: 

-Time Out of Mind," by Rachel Field: 
In 'Time Out of Mind" Rachel Field 
has done a new kind of Maine novel— 
her story is of the coast itself, beginning 
at the time of the shipping trade and 
the coming of the lirst summer people. 

Major Fortune has the blood of ship- 
builders in his veins, and the shipyards 
which he inherited are his pride. In his 
father's time no swifter vessels with tall- 
er sails or greater spreads of canvas 
sailed the seas than those of the Fortune 
yards. But the passing of the years 
brings steam instead of sails, and disas- 
ter faces the Fortunes. It is the story 
of the Fortune family— Major and his 
children, Nat and Rissa, and Kate Her- 
nald, who comes to Fortune Folly as a 
country-bred child and is bound by love 
and hate to the new household. The salty 
pine lands, the shipyards and the tiny 
harbor village are her home, but because 
of the Fortunes, she faces strange crises 
and follows their adventures from one 
end of the earth to another, meeting 
with them both disaster and success. 

The book is filled with scenes which 
stand out in one's memory— great ship- 
yards looking strangely unfamiliar in 
the light of the flaring torches on the 
night of the lauching of the ill-fated 
"Rainbow," return of Nat from his trip 
to sea, when his father "attempts to 
make a man of him," Nat's hour of tri- 
umph at the concert when people clap 
and shout at the end of his symphony. 
And through it all runs the tender love 
story of Kate, whose loyalties lie as deep 
as the roots of the Maine pines, and 
who is never shaken from her quiet ways 
by the stress and storm of the more 
complicated lives around her. It is a 
fine novel with its roots in the America 
that breeds perseverance in the face of 
tremendous odds.

"Mary, Queen of Scotland arid the 
Isles," by Stefan Zweig: 'lo all admir- 
ers of Zweig's brilliant and charming 
biographical skill, to the thousands of 
readers of his famous "Marie Antoi- 
nette," there must be great rejoicing to 
read "Mary, Queen of Scotland and the 
Isles," which he describes as his "sister" 
book to the other famous work. With 
the same psychological insight, the same 
wise sifting of evidence, the same clear 
and dispassionate analysis of a strange 
and disturbing career, the author pre- 
sents us with a view of Scotland's tragic 
queen. Mary's career was one long and 
acrimonious dispute with Elizabeth. In 
the end it brought her to the block, but 
it seems as if Mary's death scene was 
also the scene of her greatest triumph. 

The author himself says, "The subject 
of Mary will always be fascinating be- 
cause of a certain quality of mystery 
and secrecy about her. As so often hap- 
pens in life, this woman had one great 
moment of passion. All the tragedy of 
Mary's life was packed into two years 
of her forty-four— the two years of 
great passion with Bothwell."

"War and Depression," by J. B. Cond- 
liffe. Can the world afford any more 
irreat wars? Is there any escape in neu- 
trality? What is the safest policy for 
this country to follow? 

In this concise graphic survey, Mr. 

Condliffe has demonstrated the indisput- 
able connection between wars and peri- 
ods of depression by tracing the present 
social and economic conditions back to 
their origins. In an interesting fashion 
he has discussed the ultimate costs of 
the last war and the inevitable disorgan- 
ization of production, the break-down of 
credit, and the losses in world trade 
which follow each period of armed con- 

In the final chapter, Mr. Condliffe, who 
is internationally known as a well-in- 
formed economist and as author of the

It was n knowing man who once said, 
'Reading nmketh a full man; it is not 
a duty, and consequently has no busi- 
ness to be made disagreeable," 

For those who wish to follow the 
words of the wise, here are a few tasty 
morsels that prove their value immedi- 

"King Coffin," by Conrad Aiken. "The 
essential thing in life is hate." So said 
Jasper Ammen when he outlined his 
project to carry his supreme contempt 
for mankind to its logical extreme and 
take a human life. The man Jasper Am- 
men would kill must be a total stran- 
ger. Some one chosen fpom the great 
gray mass of mankind, over whose life 
the killer could exercise godlike and un- 
suspected mastery, knowing all about 
him, while he did not even guess his 
murderer's existence, much less that he 
was being stalked as a cat stalks a spar- 
row. A murder from which there could 
be no escape, for how could the victim 
take flight from a danger of which he 
was not even aware? 

So Jasper Ammen plots the perfect 
crime — pure, motiveless murder — and se- 
lects his hapless victim. Pay by day he 
studies the stranger's life and habits, 
Step by step he nears the moment for 
the kill. Then, when everything is ready, 
there is a curious and totally unexpect- 
ed development and this chronicle of 
cold relentless hate assumes the garment 
of deepest mystery. It is an uncanny 
story that searches the depths of evil in 
a man's soul, written with artistry that 
distinguishes all of Aiken's works, 

"Poor John Fitch," by Thomas Boyd. 
John Fitch invented a practicable steam- 
boat many years before Fulton's "Cler- 
mont" paddled up the Hudson, But he 
was too shabby to command respect; too 
ungracious to attract friends, He and 
his steamboat fade:l away. He died in 
poverty and lies in a forgotten grave. 

Thomas Boyd brought this strange 
genius to life. He is shown with all his 
eccentricities, his ingenuities, his queer 
relations with women, and his poverty- 
stricken make-shifts. His life was fan- 
tastic and adventurous. He kept a curi- 
ous, misspelled journal which Boyd uses 
to produce this biography that appeals 
to all kinds of readers and preserves for 
all time the story of the eighteenth cen- 
tury American eccentric who invented 
the steamboat.

"Oil for the Lamps of China," by 
Alice T. Hobart. Courage is not dead, 
as you will discover in this gallant novel 
of two Americans in the Orient. Against 
a vivid background of the changeless, 
self-sufficient East there unfolds this 
saga of a young couple struggling for 
security and happiness. 

Stephen Chase is a young and ambi- 
tious field inspector for one of the great 
oil companies in China. His job, that 
of establishing native agencies for in- 
land, takes him into flic heart of that 
strange country, and it is to these prim- 
itive places that he brings Hester, his 
wife. Through all the privations of liv- 
ing, the frequent changes of post, his 

long absences in the interior, the con- 
tinual fear of that impersonal corpora- 
tion which employs him, the two stand 
together, united by their love and cour-

"The Santa Fe Trail" by Robert L. 
Duffus: The trail to Santa Fe was the 
first of the great beaten tracks which 
joined the American East and West. As 
early as the sixteenth century parts of 
it were trodden by adventurers. When 
Lewis and Clarke were pushing into the 
northwest, Santa Fe was already a goal 
for French and American traders. Hither 
came Captain Pike of Pike's Peak fame. 
Early trappers like Jedediah Smith went 
here to found a rich market for Am- 
erican goods. Great scouts like Kit Car- 
son followed the trail. 

The civilization of Santa Fe with its 
blended Indian and Spanish strains, with 
its music, banquets, and flirtatious sen- 
oritas startled the Puritans from Ten- 
nessee to Missouri, Yet even more ex- 
citing is the tale of how the trail was 
the path of the American army to Cali- 
fornia in 1846, thus bringing .the Far 
West into the Union, and how two rail- 
roads fought for the right to hold the 
iron trail which now links the East and

When I was very small;

That I might soon grow tall. 

So I could wear a train 
And slippers made of gold; 
To go to dances with my prince, 
A gallant, brave and bold. 

This prince would come to woo, 
To bow and kiss my hand, 
To tell me that he loved me. 
And offer gold and lands. 

Rut now that I am older, 
And childhood joys have fled; 
Tin searching for the magic lamp 
To make me small instead.

At Life Work Retreat 


Campus Sponsored Meeting Proves 
Helpiul To Students. 

Lebanon Valley College was host to 
students from nearby colleges over the 
past week-end for the Life Work Re- 
cruit Retreat. All the services except 
fellowship and farewell were held in 
the United Brethren Church. 

Alter the registration at nine o'clock, 
the rirst service opened at 10 o'clock 
baturday morning. Elizabeth Bender 
presided, and the devotions were in 
charge of the East Penn Conference. 
Dr. Lynch welcomed the visitors, in 
the absence of Dr. i J . E. V. Shannon due 
to illness, Rev. R. J. Tyson addressed 
the group. He talked on the theme of 
this retreat, "Open Doors". Dr. S. C. 
tnck spoke on "What It Means to Be 
Called." "A call is a consciousness 
within yourself, it tells you that you 
must follow that profession." In re- 
gards to the ministry he said, "Don't 
be a minister unless you cannot help 
being a minister ; then be a minister and 
be prepared to be a good one." He 
cleared the hazy concept which most 
people have concerning the meaning and 
signilicance of a call. 

three sessions were held in the after- 
noon and evening. At two o'clock the 
entire retreat was given a series of per- 
sonal questions. The young people were 
then divided into three groups under the 
leadership of Rev. R. J. Tyson, Rev. S. 
T. Lundore, and Rev. D. L. Fegley. At 
the three o'clock session Harold Beames- 
derier presided, and the devotions were 
in charge of the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Recruits. Rev. P. B. Gibble de- 
fined the "Devotional Retreat". Louis 
Straub was the presiding officer in the 
evening and the devotions were in care 
°f the Pennsylvania Conference. The 
address for the evening was given by 
J. T. Musselman, a returned mis- 
sionary from Africa. 

Ihe services for Sunday began at 
e 'ght-thirty with a special Holy Com- 
munion service. The communion was 
^ministered by Dr. W. A. Wilt. Ethel 
dt was the acting superintendent at 
™e Sunday School services. Dr. A. H.

West Chester Quintet 
Trounces LV.C. Five 


Teachers Register 33-12 Win Over 
Valley In Cage Opener. 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen 
evidently figured that Friday the Thir- 
teenth was not a day for exercise. Sadly 
enough eight of the Blue and White 
basketeers found themselves at some 
time or another on the evening of the 
Thirteenth in basketball suits — on a bas- 
ketball court — and they were highly in- 

Their clubby little tete-a-tete was 
rudely interrupted from time to time by 
the West Chester quintet, who some- 
how seemed to be enjoying a bit of a 
cage practice on the same court with the 
Flying Dutchmen. Horror of horrors ! 

In the course of time, the Valleyites 
were donated a dozen points, while the 
Teachers racked up 33 in their unimped- 
ed warm-up session. 

At no time during the alleged contest 
did the Valleyites have a look-in on the 
ball game, and the feeble offensive and 
defensive play enabled the Teachers to 
run amuck practically as they pleased in 
a complete rout of the Flying Dutch- 

A very inauspicious opening of the 
season it was, to be sure. L. V. C. scored 
but five times from the field, with Paul 
Billett snaring four and Snell the fifth 
of these twin-counters. Two foul shots 
completed the Blue and White's attack 
for the evening. 

West Chester assumed an 18-8 lead at 
the intermission and continued to domi-

Christmas Spirit 
■ Visits South Hall 

Santa Brings Gifts, Playlet, And 
Songs To Jolly Christmas Party. 

At 10 o'clock on Dec. 18 the girls of 
South Hall and their dean, Miss Wood, 
gathered in the parlor to enjoy the an- 
nual Christmas party. 

The program opened with a grand 
march, played by a band composed of 
Margaret Druck, Dorothy Grimm, Ruth 
Phenicie, Mary Webb, Velma Gingrich, 
Greta Heiland, Cordelia Shaeffer, Alice 
Coover, Ruth Rohrer, Charlotte Stabley, 
Martha Elser, and Elnora Reeder. When 
the band was seated and settled each 
girl drew forth her invitation and read 
to the assemblage the verse written on it 
especially for her. A playlet entitled The 
Spirit of Christmas was then presented 
with Ella Mason as the Spirit, Flora 
Strayer, Romaine Stiles and Nellie Mor- 
rison as the three wise men, Mildred 
Gangwer as Mary, and Anna Morrison 
as Joseph. Martha Elser played a violin 
solo which met with a great deal of 
enthusiasm. Agnes Morris read The 
Other Wise Man by Van Dyck. 

The gifts were distributed and every- 
one sat back to listen to the Hall Diary, 
read by Lillian Zubroff. The program 
ended with Christinas carols sung by the 
entire group. Refreshments were served 
and enjoyed, of course. 

The several guests at the party were 
Elizabeth Bingaman, Velma Gingrich, 
Mildred Haas, and Alice Richie. 


The Y. M. and V. W. C. A. met in a 
joint vesper service, Sunday evening in 
the chapel to hear an interesting talk 
by Dr. Wallace on his new book, "Con- 
rad Weiser." The meeting was opened 
by Daniel Shearer. Devotions were in 
charge of Lucille Maberry, followed by 
Louis Straub, who led in prayer. The 
group of approximately sixty students 
was then favored with a selection by the 
vocal trio, composed of Charlotte Sta- 
bley, Helen Sunimy, and Gayle .Mount/.. 
The chairman introduced Dr. Wallace, 
who gave a very interesting resume of 
his new book. Every one who heard this 
fine address will want to read his new 
book, "Conrad Weiser." The service was 
concluded with son-- and prayer. 

Plans Complete For 
Annual Xmas Banquet 


Decorations And Speeches Will Fea- 
ture At Exclusive Dorm Student 

The candle witll. its glowing flame will 
be symbolic of the Christmas spirit at 
the annual banquet in the dining rooms 
of North Hall, at six P. M., on Thurs- 
day, Dec. 19. 

The entire decorations will have as 
their motive the Christmas candle, with 
holly berries and leaves to add to the 
holiday atmosphere. Some of the deco- 
rations in preparation for the affair have 
already been completed. The pillars of 
the entry are wound in spirals with green 
and red crepe paper, sprigs of laurel 
entwined. Holly is strung from the 
center light to the four corners and hung 
with icicles ; lighted wreaths grace the 
windows. The railings of the stair-way 
are also wound with holly, likewise the 
newel posts, which are topped with red 
candles in silver holders. The banquet 
will be lighted solely by tall red candles 
on the tables. Red and green crepe paper, 
holly, berries and icicles will add to the 
impressive beauty and simplicity of the 
occasion. The place-card programs will 
carry out the candle emblem, being in 
the form of large candles in holders wth 
sprigs of holly and berries. 

The speeches of the evening will carry 
out the idea of things that have influence 
on our campus life. Some of the con-

Money Moguls Meet 

The treasurers of various campus 
organizations met with Prof. Stokes 
(in room 18 of the Ad building) on 
Monday, Dec. 16 to discuss the keep- 
ing of accounts. 

Prof. Stokes explained that the Fi- 
nance Committee has decided to re- 
quire all treasurers to keep regular 
accounts which will be audited at the 
end of the year. He emphasized the 
fact that the committee is not con- 
cerned with the use to which the 
money is put, and recommended that 
the four societies also adopt this plan. 
Its advantages are: less responsibility 
for treasurers and more confidence on 
the part of pupils. 


Admirable Crichton — Barrie Comedy 

Adequately Presented By Juniors 


Student Review. 

In presenting The Admirable Crich- 
ton, the Junior class displays more opti- 
mism and courage than histrionic judg- 
ment. They underestimated, we think, 
the importance of the fact that James 
Barrie, however fine a writer he be con- 
sidered, probably failed to take into con- 
sideration that his plays were going to be 
enacted by American students of whom 
most have quite a bit less acting ability 
than localized speech difficulties. It is not 
to be expected that their experiments 
with the British way of saying it would 
turn out altogether fortunately, nor in 
the case under discussion did they. Karl 
Flocken as Lord Brocklchurst and 
VVoodrow Himmelright as Trchcm 
were, in this respect, exceptions at whose 
hands the rest of the cast fared badly 
n the matter of contrast. 

Of course, in viewing the play as an 
integrated production and allowing that 
the actors were amateurs of the very first 
water, one must admit that there were 
probably reasons why the audience kept 
its attention focussed for the most part 
on the stage. It is somewhat discon- 
certing to an actor to play before a house 
which spends the evening counting the 
numbers of brass rings in the curtain 
surrounding the orchestra pit, but in 
spite of the fact that it happens to the 
best people, no such tragic procedure took

North Hall Co-eds 
Hold Xmas Party 

Tableaux, Reading, Music Hold Sway 
At Informal Gathering. 

One of the most elaborate programs of 
the pre-Christmas festivities was held 
Wednesday evening, in North Hall par- 
lor, at 8 o'clock. 

The opening feature presented a dor- 
mitory band, under the direction of Rae 
Anna Reber, composed of North Hall 
music students. Their rendition was a 
few of the well-known Christmas carols. 
In a truly interesting fashion, Virginia 
Summers then read a portion of Carol 
Bird's famous "The Bird's Christmas 

Then came a novelty. A group of 
girls including Gayle Mountz, Helen 
Summy, Grace Naugle, Lou Gillan, 
Eleanor Lynch, Sally Meckley, Carolyn 
Kohler, and Ruth Buck, sang several 
Christmas Carols in French. 

As a preparation of that which was to 
follow Lou Gillan read the Christinas 
story as it is related in the Bible. Fol- 
lowing this, the sophomore girls gave 
three beautiful tableaux. The first rep- 
resented the Angel speaking to the shep- 
herds; the second depicted the Babe in 
the manger, and the third was the por- 
trayal of . the Three Wise Men giving 
their gifts to the New King. During the 
presentation of these tableaux, the trio, 
composed of Helen Summy, Grace Nau- 
gle, and Gayle Mountz sang "While

Bij Dr. G. E. Schweigert 

A courageous group from the Junior 
class did its best to present all the en- 
tertainment and illusion in James Bar- 
rie's play, "The Admirable Crichton" to 
the audience which gathered in Engle 
Hall, last Wednesday evening. These 
people chose an interesting play but one 
which required careful acting and which 
made great demands on the men in 
charge of the properties. The audience 
seemed to appreciate these difficulties and 
to admire the earnest and thoughtful 
manner in which they were met. 

Most of the high spots in the play 
showed carefully accelerated pace, good 
intonation and good acting which more 
than compensated for one or two weaker 
scenes. The finish on these major scenes 
was, as it always is, the result of ex- 
cellent direction. The directors were Dr. 
George Struble and Mr. Phillips. The 
major roles were taken by Lois Har- 
bold, Grace Naugle, Marjorie Smith, 
Maxine Early, Kenneth Eastland, Charles 
Kinney, William Earnest, Karl Flocken, 
and Woodrow Himmelright. This cast 
was surprisingly well selected when one 
considers that dyed-in-the-wool Eng- 
lishmen had to be chosen, and that the 
choice was restricted to the members of 
a single class. 

In any play the character roles tend to 
be the most outstanding but it still 
seems true that William Earnest as Ern- 
est, Karl Flocken as Lord Brocklehurst, 
and Maxine Earley as Tweeny were con- 
stantly the better characterizations. And 
there were times when, with and with- 
out the help of the author, each stole the 
scene completely. This is written with- 
out the least intention of detracting from 
the credit due the other players who are 
not individually mentioned. 

The settings and costumes were meti- 
culously handled by J. Edward Schmidt, 
Allen Rutherford, Claire Adams and 
their assistants. Two distinct scenes on 
a tropical island were presented in con- 
trast to the home of an English Lord. 
There was no evasion of such difficulties 
as foliage, parts of a yacht and full 
dress lor a complete household; there 
was, on the contrary, a feeling that 
everything had been simply and naturally 
provided. The more subtle effects, light- 
ing and make up, were more than ade- 
quately handled, Mr. Phillips, in charge

Vox Populi 

lhere are many objections in uehali ui 
certain faculty uxfemoers to the conduct 
ui couples on campus, 'a hey object to 
their behavior, their piaces ana tuejtua 
of entertainment; and most of all they 
ouject to the tact that the stuttents pre- 
ler to go home week-ends instead 01 
staying here and finding ways of enter- 
taining themselves on campus. Due con- 
siueration of the basic reasons for tue 
behavior of these young people might 
prove to be of assistance in striking a 
happy medium. In the first place tliere 
is no really suitable place in Annville 
where a group of young lolks can meet 
and enjoy themselves. It is true there 
are parlors in each girl's dormitory, and 
that this year more than previously the 
young folks have been gathering there; 
but on reconsideration it is seen that 
there is no recreation furnished in these 
parlors. The sole entertainment possible 
is that furnished by the radio, which is 
in itself hardly sufficient to provide 
enough recreation for all the young peo- 
ple. Consequently these people seek rec- 
reation elsewhere, with a little tlegree 
more of privacy — resulting in a constant 
gathering at such places as Brunner's, 
the Pennway, and the "Safe," or prome- 
nading the by-roads leading to the Quit- 
tapahilla, Kreider's, Lovers' Lane, the 
cemeteries, and various other places. If 
the young man is fortunate enough to 
possess a car, the young folks go to 
neighboring towns to dubious places of 
entertainment, the Delreno being a good 
example of a place popularly attended. 
Surely the faculty members would pre- 
fer to have the student body on campus 
under their watchful eyes than galavant- 
ing all over creation. 

There are certain factors which might 
aid greatly in solving this conflicting 
problem. A recreation room would be a 
helpful solution — but, you ask,, where 
could such a place be built on our cam- 
pus? At present there are four society 
rooms, which are open to members only. 
Philo and Kalo halls are in such posi- 
tions that they might be accessible to 

everyone. Instead of forbidding couples 
the benefit of entertainment in these 
■hails, why not open them to couples in 
the evenings for their own use? Game 
boards could be purchased inexpensively 
and erected in these halls. The radios 
and pianos also would furnish some en- 
tertainment. Not so long ago Philo and 
Kalo halls were open to couples, but 
since the "raid," restrictions have for- 
bidden couples in any campus buildings 
except the girls' dormitory parlors. Oth- 
er colleges that have national fraterni- 
ties and sororities have the fraternity 
houses in which to entertain. It is true 
>ve have no houses, but the society halls 
could be put to some profitable use, both 
to students and faculty. Perhaps the 
uigher powers prefer to have L. V. C. 
students walking the streets and by- 
roads, or frequenting out-of-the-way 
places. It is not that these couples pre- 
fer to isolate themselves from all other 
company — and seek these places as suit- 
able; but that they resent being herded 
with a half dozen other couples in a 
brightly lighted room with only a radio 
as a means of entertainment. If there 
were ping-pong tables, card tabies, game 
boards and suitable games available in 
the parlors it would help, but it is em- 
barrassing and boring to face five or six 

her couples with no privacy whatso- 
ever, and nothing to do but talk. The 
only alternative is walking the streets — 
even in bitterly cold weather. Let's open 
the society halls to the faculty and stu- 
dents in the evening! The small "Y" 
dining room in North Hall has tables 
which in the evenings might be used for 
games. Why couldn't this room be 
opened also as a place for entertain- 
ment? The tables would make excellent 
ping-pong boards if the equipment were 
supplied by the "Y's." 

Why not have open-house in dorms on 
Saturday evenings — thus more young 
folks would come together and be better 
acquainted. After studying all week, 
there are many fellows and girls who 
do not have any particular friends; but 
would enjoy an evening's entertainment 
in the company of several others in like 
circumstances. Just sitting in the par- 
lor would not be the suitable entertain- 

ment, nor would the radio serve the pur- 
pose; out more organized games, oi 
enough variety as to not be boring would 
be an excellent institution. 

lhere has been much criticism! of cou- 
ples going home week-ends — but why 
shouldn't tfiey go home? — there is no ef- 
fort to make young folks feel at home 
or to give them any reason to remaiu 
on campus over week-ends. Certain fac- 
ulty members object to dances held on 
campus, while in truth they are one of 
the few factors that serve to attract 
people to stay here when they might be 
elsewhere. Now comes the jurisdiction 
that couples are not to loiter on North 
Hall steps or in the hallway. Are we 
in a penal institution where our very 
lives are directed from morning to 
night? May we have no personal privi- 
leges or say in the legislation of this 
organization? And this is government 
of the students, by the students and for 
the students! 

How about it, faculty? Will you be 
willing to co-operate to make L. V. C. 
a desirable place for our young people? 
Let's make our students at home on 
campus !

still seems plausible that they might have 
been handled in a less obvious manner. 
The same problems are well met in 
"Outward Bound" although this play is 
not marked by the satirical nature that 
one will probably find in ''The Admir- 
able Crichton" when it is read. Aside 
from the amusing romance between 
Crichton and Tweeny, the author gave 
the cast little help during the first act. 
And, except for Crichton, Ernest and the 

cold water bucket in the last act, little 
use was made of symbolism. If these 
remarks are taken, not as criticisms of 
an established playwright, but as a means 
toward appreciating the difficulties en- 
countered by the actors, one realizes that 
the cast as a whole did well even in the 
scattered weak spots. 

It is hard to believe, but the audience 
was given the rare treat of being exposed 
to a stage full of Englishmen without a 
single monocle.

Lebanon Valley's gridders are in fine 
shape for the Florida holiday jaunt, ac- 
cording to the latest reports from the 
college athletic office. 

All of the football players who are 
to make the trip are in fine physical 
shape, with several mid-season casual- 
ties ready to return to action. 

The team will leave Saturday or Sun- 
day for the South and will not pause 
for any workouts along the way. The 
gridmen are expected to arrive in Flori- 
da Monday or Tuesday and will engage 
in one or two practices before Christ- 
inas Day, so that the Flying Dutchmen 
will accustom themselves as much as pos- 
sible to playing in the warmer climate. 

The Tampa Terrace Hotel will be the 
players' headquarters during their 
Southern stay. . . . 

We recognize, of course, that this was 
only one of the difficulties encountered in 
the production. However, in a critical 
essay, such obstacles must be ignored by 
the reviewer. The standards of criti- 
cism are not comparative. Their nature 
is cold, absolute, and at times, very un- 

Therefore we feel obliged to flay Karl 
Flocken with particular severity for his 
inartistic interpretation of the Lord 
Brocklehurst role. It would probably be 
considered terrific on a vaudeville stage, 
but that he was not acting on such a 
stage, Mr. Flocken at no time appeared 
to be aware. Even though Barrie did 
probably intend the role to be that of an 
ass, we refuse to concede that he went 
so far as intending it to be the part of a 
simp. In fairness, however, it must be 
said that Mr. Flocken's acting was of the 
best. To play convincingly in a charac- 
ter definitely alien to one's own nature 
is true acting and Mr. Flocken is there- 
fore a true actor. On this account, we 
regret extremely that he should have 
missed fire in his interpretation, for if 
he had been set to rights, the audience 
would have witnessed a rarely felicious 
display of theatre art. 

We like to say something nice about 
everybody if it is possible to do so with- 
out obvious flattery. For that reason, we 
compliment William Earnest on having 
a beautiful voice. At times, too, he 
showed a faint glimmer of knowing what 
his role was all about. Such times were 
not sufficiently frequent, however, to al- 
leviate the suffering his presence upon 
the stage must have occasioned what- 
ever connoisseurs of the drama may have 
been present. With slow deliberate 
slashes, he hacked his lines apart, butch- 
ering them cruelly period by period. In 
his few better moments, though, he 
proved quite amusing as, for instance 
during the early part of the first act. 
His work became successively worse, 
however, so that by the time he reached 
the third act, in which his deer-hide ap- 
parel made him look somewhat like a 
satyr, the goat characteristics of that 
peculiar hybrid were predominantly no- 

Mr. Earnest's mastery of the dramatic 
art, 110 matter how questionable its ex- 
istence may be, was by no means sur- 
passed by that of Charles Kinney, who 
was unhappily cast for the role of Lord 
Loam. Mr. Kinney may possibly develop 
into an actor at some future time. He 
appears to understand what the role de- 
mands. His limitations are of a purely 
physical nature and for that, it is to be 
hoped, he can not be held accountable. 
We refer, for one thing, to Mr. Kinney's 
voice — an unknown quantity over which 
he was unable to exercise proper control. 
It was early apparent that Lord Loam 
was intended to be a typical English peer 
with a tendency toward ponderous wind- 
bagism and a great deal of false dignity. 
It seemed to be Mr. Kinney's idea — and 
if so we accede the propriety of the 
viewpoint — that such a character would 
have a bull-fiddle voice. Although he 
strove valiantly to do so, we fear Mr. 
Kinney does not know how to play a 
bull-fiddle, or even imitate one. The best 

he could achieve was an unsteady violin 
effect which did not prove to be entirely 
convincing. We are truly sorry for Mr. 
Kinney because his interpretation was 
otherwise quite the quite. 

In contrast to these gentlemen, Ken- 
neth Eastland was quite admirable as the 
admirable Crichton. Although how he 
held his neck at right angles to his body 
for such extended periods kept us guess- 
ing, the polish of his delivery and the 
fine shades of meaning he gave to lines 
of great difficulty were really creditable. 
Perhaps it might have been considered 
inconsistent with the icy dignity of the 
role, but nevertheless we should have 
preferred to have him turn on more heat 
when he finally succumbed to the wiles 
of woman. But since it has been said 
that small flaws make great pictures, it 
were perhaps better to call Mr. East- 
land's acting powerful, masterful, and 
all that sort of thing lest controversy and 
strife enter out our already too tempes- 
tuous life. 

Of the feminine leads, Lois Harbold as 
Lady Mary was definitely good: It is 
true that we were a little surprised to 
see her appear on what purported to be 
a desert island clad in that stamp of 
civilization, the bath-robe, and moreover, 
a bath-robe which we know blooming 
well belongs to Mr. Kinney. Perhaps 
we're just old fashioned and set in our 
ways, but things we see every day still 
carry their every-day connotation for us 
when we see them on the stage. There 
is simply no use in trying to pull an il- 
lusion over our eyes that way. 

The versatility displayed by Miss Har- 
bold in characterizing successfully both 
sides of Lady Mary, a dual role, entitles 
her to a bouquet without any brickbats, 
so we shall refrain from comment on 
her voice, which though clear and dis- 
tinct, lacked vitality just a dash here and 

Ladies Agatha and Catherine, played 
respectively by Grace Naugle and Mar- 
jorie Smith were supporting characters 
who failed to support. They did not, 
however, as is often the way with ac- 

tors in minor roles, attempt to steal the 
show. It is probable that they recog- 
nized the folly of such a course of ac- 

That old battle-axe, Lady Brockle- 
hurst, as done by Martha Faust, was, we 
regret to state, a little dull. About fif- 
teen more years worth of age would have 
served to sharpen her up considerably. 
She might have contributed more toward 
the success of the thing by drinking a 
glass or so of vinegar and sucking a few 
lemons. Although we have not the honor 
of numbering Miss Faust among our 
personal acquaintances, we should say 
that too much human kindness and amic- 
ability runs in her veins to give the role 
what it demands without some such 

Of the lesser characters, the most out- 
standing was Tweeny, portrayed by 
Maxine Earley. When Miss Earley first 
put in an appearance, we suspected that 
she was going to do a burlesque for us, 
the little vixen, but she fooled us, and 
gave a characterization of high artistry. 
Although Mr. Barrie appears to have 
sl.pped up badly on what constitutes a 
kitchen maid, she did a great deal to 
minimize his indiscretion. 

It is too bad that Woodrow Himmel- 
right did not manage to wangle them 
for a more important role than that of 
Trehern, for he gave a capable interpre- 
tation that attracted just the right degree 
of attention to himself without injury to 
the rest of the cast. His work was 
skillful and his voice and accent, as we 
have said before, convincing. The role, 
unfortunately is devoid of opportunities 
to test whether or not his capability ex- 
tends beyond that required of a mere 
embellishment of the plot. 

The one-liners, Jean Harnish as Mrs. 
Perkins, Esther Koppenhaver as Mile. 
Jeanne, Sarah Light as Simmons, Charles 
Hoffman as Ralston, Elwood Needy as 
M. Fleury, and Richard Smith as 
Thompsett and Lieut. Pickering do as 
much as can be done with this kind of

Schedule To Include Albright And 

The debating club held a very inter- 
esting and spirited meeting last Tuesday 
at the home of Dr. Stevenson. A prac- 
tice debate on the subject: Resolved, 
That all married women in industry 
should be replaced by individuals having 
no other means of support," was pre- 
sented. The Oregon plan was used for 
rebuttal. Those who participated on the 
program showed preparedness in their 
Speeches and keen knowledge of the sub- 
ject. Emma Mary Smyser was the af- 
firmative speaker; the negative speaker 
was Thomas Guinavan. Calvin Reber 
was the cross-questioner. After the 
cross-questioning the subject was thor- 
oughly discussed by the club. The deci- 
sion was in favor of the affirmative side. 

It has definitely been decided that de- 
bates will be held with Albright, Ursi- 
nus, and Elizabethtown. Others are be- 
ing planned. It was also decided that 
the men's team shall debate on the Ore- 
gon plan and the girls' team shall use 
the straight debate. A constitutional 
subject will be the topic.

Gandler was actively engaged through- 
out all last week taking individual por- 
traits and group photos at L. V. C. He 
represents the Merin-Baliban Photo Co. 
of Philadelphia, to whom the contract 
for all photographic work for the 1937 
Quittapahilla has been awarded. 

Among the many innovations in this 
year's book will be individual photos of 
all faculty members. This will be the first 
time in several years that they have 
been represented individually. Alembers 
of the graduating class will not be shown 
wearing the traditional cap and gown. 
1 he latter item is an indication that the 
specifications of the 1937 Quittapahilla 
are such as to make the book modern and 
up to date in every respect.

Plans Complete For 

Annual Xmas Banquet 

(Continued From Page 1) 

tributing influences will be : — the "Quit- 
tie", North Hall steps, Brunner's, the 
parlors, Kreider's and Lover's Lane. The 
speakers of the evening will be: 
In the large dining hall, 

Toastmaster Boyd Sponaugle 

Senior Speaker Jane Shellenberger 

Junior Speaker Louis Straub 

Sophomore Speaker ..Ernestine Jagnesak 
Freshman Speaker Bill Clark 

In the small dining hall, 

Toastmistress Virginia Britton 

Senior Speaker Adam Bigler 

Junior Speaker Maxine Early 

Sophomore Speaker ....Walter Fridinger 
Freshman Speaker ....Margaret Holbrook 

There has been much contention among 
the faculty in regard to the usual dance 
after the banquet. Certain faculty mem- 
bers feel that such a dance is "not in 
keeping with the spirit of Christmas." 

If there is no dance the student body 
will engage in carol singing following 
the banquet. At any event the evening 
will prove to be an appropriate begin- 
ning of a grand and glorious vacation. 

Happy thought: Two weeks Christmas 

Sad thought: Two weeks and three 
days of classes till semesters.
